Matthew 22:37-39
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.

Nowhere does it say "unless", to give us a reason to not follow this commandment. How often do I add in the "unless" on my own and find reason to not do this? What reasons do I give myself to justify not following this commandment? I say "I", though I know it's a "we" thing. I'm guilty as many of us are - too often justifying rather than just following the direction given by the Lord.

I'm working on it...
