Here’s your daily dose of what matters most! One of the great commandments is to love our neighbors. However, in today’s contentious world, this can feel difficult. Learn how Christ would have us love those around us.
And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.—Matthew 22:39
We must try to keep both of the great commandments. To do so, we walk a fine line between law and love—keeping the commandments and walking the covenant path, while loving our neighbors along the way. This walk requires us to seek divine inspiration on what to support and what to oppose and how to love and listen respectfully and teach in the process. Our walk demands that we not compromise on commandments but show forth a full measure of understanding and love.—Dallin H. Oaks
