QTVOTD: With all your Heart, Soul, and Mind…

“…You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind (intellect). This is the great (most important, principal) and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as [you do] yourself. These two commandments sum up and upon them depend all the Law and the Prophets.” Matthew 22:37-40 ->me: I feel like I need to sit and stew on these verses for hours.  I just continually find myself asking -> What does it mean to love God with ALL my heart?  Love God with my soul…what does that mean? Now…with all of my mind, I can wrap my brain around that.  After all, I am very logical thinker and this makes sense to me.  Loving my God is the most important and first commandment.  For the ‘love your neighbor’ verse (39), this is something that my cousin (Teague) and I are setting out to not only beseech God for ourselves, but also for each other.  We are spending the entire week reading over 1 Corinthians 13 (the preeminence of LOVE) and praying Colossians 1:9-14 over each other.  What a gift Teague is to me.  Loving God with all of my heart and all of my soul….this is going to require more time in the prayer closet to ask the Holy Spirit to reveal what this means in my daily life and application.
