FIRST READING (Deuteronomy 10: 12-14)
Moses told the people:
"People of Israel, what does the Lord your God want from you? The Lord wants you to worship and obey him and to love and serve him with all your heart and soul. For your own good you must obey his laws and commands that I am teaching you today.
"Everything belongs to the Lord your God. The highest heavens are his, and so are the earth and everything on it."
Response: The precepts of the Lord give joy to the heart.
GOSPEL (Mark 12: 28-31)
When one of the teachers of the Law of Moses heard Jesus give a good answer, he asked him, "What is the most important commandment?"
Jesus answered, "The most important one says: 'People of Israel, you have only on Lord and God. You must love him with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength.' The second most important commandment says: 'Love others are much as you love yourself.' No other commandment is more important than these."
The Gospel for this week teaches the two most important commandments.
Love Round Lyrics:
Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and all your soul and all your mind, and love all humankind as you would love yourself and love—the Lord your God—with all your heart (tick, tick, tick, boom!) and all your soul and mind and love all humankind.
We’ve got Christian lives to live. We’ve got Jesus love to give. We’ve got nothing to hide because in Him we all find love!
