There was a gardener digging a hole in his backyard. "That's a pretty deep hole," a neighbor said. "What are you going to put in it?"
"I am replanting some of my corn," was the quick response.
"But you surely don't need such a deep hole to plant a few seeds of corn," the new neighbor said incredulously.
"I surely do," replied the gardener. "The seeds are all inside one of your chickens."
Jesus was asked, "Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?" He said, "You shall love the Lord your God... You shall love your neighbor as yourself."
Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
- Matthew 22:36-40
Dear Lord Jesus, We want to be loved. Help us to give away our love, so that it will grow in us. In Jesus’ Name Amen.
