First and greatest: Matthew 22.38

“This is the first and greatest commandment.”

Matthew 22.38

The old covenant passed away, but the truth of love for God with all one’s being remains. While no commandment ought to be neglected, some things are more important than others, because they are broader, deeper, and more meaningful to the whole.

Do I like “sound doctrine” more than “sincere love”? Is my fear greater than my loving devotion to God? Is love for him my over-reaching priority?
