And one of the scribes came up and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, asked him, “Which commandment is the most important of all?”￼
Jesus answered, “The most important is, ￼‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, ￼the Lord is one. ￼And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ ￼￼
The second is this: ￼‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment ￼greater than these.”
During the current COVID-19 outbreak, here are a few ways to show yourself and your neighbor some love:
- Stay home if you’re sick.
- Avoid gatherings of more than 10 people, and maintain 6 ft of social distancing if you are around others. Do not shake hands. Social distancing is extremely important to protect our neighbors from being infected. You do not have to be actively sick to carry the virus or pass it to others!
- Cover coughs and sneezes, then wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer. Immediately throw away used tissues.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces. Don’t forget those cell phones!
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. (2 Cor. 13:14)
