Advent Devotional: Saturday, December 28

Saturday, The Third Day of Christmas: Love
December 28, 2013

Scripture: “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”  Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” Matthew 22: 36-39

During this holiday season it is really easy to focus on the first commandment that Jesus refers to here. After all, everywhere we look there are reminders of our faith, so it is easy to be reminded of our love for God during the Christmas season. However, the second commandment mentioned here is a little more difficult to focus on.
