Inspirational Scripture – Matt 22:37-40 NRSV

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.” This is the great and first commandment. And the second is like it: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
