Most Important Question
One of them; a Lawyer, asked Jesus which is the greatest command in the Law. Lawyers are Attorneys that are professional qualified to offer legal advice. Lawyers are regarded as learned people with so much knowledge of the law of the land. The Bible says this particular Lawyer was curious to know the most important commandment among all commandments. The outstanding brilliant Lawyer asked Jesus ” Master which is the greatest commandment?”
“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself” ( Matthew 22:37 KJV) and (Matthew 22:39 KJV)
He concluded by saying that these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. Which means these two commandment are very important and all other commandments depend on these two commandments.
Therefore, the most important questions every Christian should ask are: How do I love God with my heart, soul and mind? How do I love my neighbors as myself? The knowledge and understanding to these great questions is the key to Christian ethics and standards of conduct.
