He says, “You shall love your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments.” How do you love God with all your hearts, your soul, and your mind? Who is your neighbor? How do you show your love for your neighbor?
