Which is the Greatest Commandment?

Love the Lord

When the Pharisees asked Jesus which was the greatest commandment in the law. The Lord quote the scripture from Deuteronomy.

He told them that the greatest commandment was to love the Lord with all your heart and soul. The second important commandment is to love your neighbor as yourself.

Another factor you need to know is that you cannot love God if you do not love yourself or your neighbor. 

Therefore in your quest to love God make sure you love yourself first and your fellow human beings.

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. (Deuteronomy 6:5; Matthew 22: 37-40)
