THE GREATEST COMMANDMENT MARK 12:29-31.
Over the last few weeks we have been going through the book of Mark and learning all about the amazing things that Jesus did, he did miracles, taught in parables and taught us how we should live.
Todays lesson is in Mark 12:29-31. Look it up in your bible, have a read.
Let’s watch a YouTube clip on this. This is the greatest commandment Jesus gave us. He taught us to love God and love others.
How do we look after our mind? By filling it with good things! Things like Gods word (the bible!). also, learn!! God has given us a brain to learn about people in the world who are telling others about Jesus!
The soul sounds like a confusing thing, but its not! How do we love God with our soul? We pray! We talk to God, and we pray for others. God loves to hear all about us and hear us show we care for others by talking about them to God.
And let’s talk about our heart. When you love God with all your heart_ it will motivate, or make you want to do things that please him. Things like giving money to the poor, or missionaries, (Renz), are great ways to show we love God with our heart.
Most importantly, we can tell others about Jesus, this really shows we love God!!
So then Jesus said in Mark 12:31 that we need to “love your neighbour as yourself”.
If we are loving God with all our heart, mind and soul, this commandment comes easily! Show your love that God has given you to others!
Who are your neighbours? Not just the people that live next door, but EVERYBODY!! Watch this little clip below, and see how when we do a kind thing for another, it spreads! Gods love grows!!
Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you for giving us such simple and clear directions in the bible of how to follow you. Help us to love you and love others. We pray that you will bless Renz, his family and all that care for him. Help us to show others your love this week.
In Jesus name, Amen.
Have a great week,
Love Karen x
