What are the 2 Greatest Commandments?
Let’s dive deep into what are the 2 greatest commandments according to the bible in Matthew 22. Jesus clearly states these two principles that are great teaching tools:
- Love the Lord your God with all of your heart, soul, and mind.
- Love your neighbor as yourself.
It’s easy to love yourself and your family, but it can be more difficult to love God when children can’t see him. Plus, it’s hard to love your neighbor when they take your toys or say mean words. Who is your neighbor? He or she is everyone you come into contact.
