The Greatest Commandment...

The Greatest Commandment…


“Love your God with your

heart, soul and mind.”

The is the first great

 commandment you will find.


Love your neighbor as yourself,”

 is number two .

These commands are what

 is asked of you.


The law, the prophets hang

 on these commands.

God loves you!  He makes no

 harsh demands.


His death on the cross—

the life that he gave.

He wants your love for him and

 your neighbor, in how you behave.


He created you to have a

 special relationship with him.

He doesn’t want you to be

 burdened down by sin.


Reading his word will give you

 wisdom in every task.

This will give you a desire to

obey him that will last.


Confess all sins to him now—

your life he will restore.

Living for Jesus—who could ask

 for anything more?

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
