Read Matthew 22:37-40 NLT

Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment.  A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.”

Put God first and love Him more than anything else – with all that we have.  That’s it, that’s the most important thing we could ever do. The second most important thing we could ever do is to love others. The interesting thing is that as we prioritize loving God, loving others naturally flows out of that. In essence, it is a perfect example of growing to go. Growing in our understanding of God and our love and devotion to Him, causes us to Go and love others the way God has shown us love. 

In what ways can you be intentional about growing in your love for God today so that He can move in your life, preparing you to go and love others?
