 In Matthew 22, we read that one of the Pharisees questioned Jesus about which was the greatest of all of the commands of God's law. Jesus replied, ?Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind? (Matthew 22:37). This is one of the many occasions that Jesus' teachings allude to the Old Testament. When Moses delivered God's commands to the people of Israel in Deuteronomy 6, he instructed the people, ?Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength? (Deuteronomy 6:4-5). Clearly, for Jesus, this command had profound importance for what it means to live in right relationship to God. Based on your reading of the Gospel of Matthew and your study in this section, summarize what you believe it means to love God with all your heart, soul, and mind.
