Scripture Lesson: Matthew 22:34-40

On this date in 1930 Brooklyn catcher Al Lopez drives one over the head of Cincinnati left fielder Bob Meusel, and the ball bounces into the bleachers at Ebbets Field. It will be the Major League’s last recorded bounce home run. The National League declares after the season such a hit will now be a ground rule double, following the lead of the American League who made the change first after the 1929 season.

Jesus was asked by the Pharisees what the greatest commandment (rule) was in the law. Jesus answered them, “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.’ All the law and the prophets hang on these two commandments.” These two rules to live by will enable us to live our lives more like Jesus. We need to love God with all our hearts, souls, and minds. We also need to love everyone else as much as we love ourselves. We can live happy and productive lives for God’s Kingdom when we love like the two rules say we should.

1. What does it meant to love God with all our hearts, souls, and minds?

2. What does it meant to love our neighbors as ourselves?

3. Do you think this kind of love is what the world needs most? Why?

Loving God and loving our fellow man, does not get any better!
