Matthew 22:37-39 (New American Standard Bible) And He said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the great and foremost commandment. The second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’
Like the famed Fibonacci spiral shown above so too the best understanding all of the scriptures flow from a simple statement found here in Matthew’s gospel. If you could just wrap your head around these simple truths and stop all the “what ifs” and “what abouts” (John 21:21-22) and walk in these simple truths your heart would then be at peace and you would understand God’s will in every situation.
Granted, your heart may quail at the implications of these statements and the consequences of walking in them, but I put forth to you that they are the path to the truest sort of peace you will ever know or experience. The central love object of our lives is the triune God of the bible. Everything worthwhile flows from that.
