James’ Notes

OCTOBER 26, 2014

The Greatest Commandment

[Jesus said], “’You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” —Matthew 22:37-40 (excerpt from Gospel)

Take my hands, and let them move
at the impulse of thy love;
take my heart, it is thine own;
it shall be thy royal throne.
—Hymn 707 (excerpt), Francis Ridley Havargal (1836-1879), alt.
