Love · Summit

more thoughts from the summit… love…

Those two days last week… filled me with so much… to think about… review…

I look back over Summit notes… and find… the five loves

This speaker took a verse… one I’ve prayed… and known for years… but only saw as two loves… aspired to the first because I believe the second will follow when we do the first…

“‘… 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:
‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
There is no commandment greater than these.”
Mark 12:30-31 NIV

1) Love God with all your heart. A matter of character.

2) Love God with all your soul. A matter of conviction.

3) Love God with all your mind. A matter of comprehension. Understanding God. 

4) Love God with all your strength. A matter of competence. Be excellent.

5) Love your neighbor as yourself. A matter of compassion.

Loving God four ways… and loving neighbors…

A great new way for me to approach this verse I pray… practical ways to love… and check my growth… on how I am loving…

Character…
Conviction…
Comprehension…
Competence…
Compassion…

Intentional… practical… love…
