Jesus replied: Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. – Matthew 22:37
Heart, soul and mind — these make up who we are. We are to love the Lord with all of us. We can’t use 40% of our heart, or love Him 10 hours a day with our soul. We are in a relationship and that means all of us, all the time.
Love the Lord with all your heart: Love Him with all of you.
Love the Lord with all your soul: Love Him with all of you.
Love the Lord with all your mind: Love Him with all of you.
We can be forgetful, we can make bad choices, we can even ignore Him at times. We are not always good at loving Him. But we are His children and He loves us, and we remind ourselves of this continually.
He has made us new, every part of us, and this new person is learning to love. We still struggle with old ways of thinking or doing things, but our heart, soul and mind has been changed! We take joy in His love and also in knowing that we can love in return. We can love. Love the Lord!
