He Has Commanded Us To Love

The Command Was Given Thou shalt love. This is not an option we are given. In the book of Mark, chapter 12, when Jesus was being quizzed by the Jewish leaders of the time, people who were trying to bait and trick him, Jesus told us we are to love. God first; and not just an “oh, I love you,…
