“Love Out Of A Pure Heart” (Leviticus 19: 18, KJV) by Carley Evans

“Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself: I Am the Lord.”

A scribe asks Jesus, “Which is the first commandment of all?” (Mark 12: 28)

Jesus answers, “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord; and thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.” (Mark 12: 29 – 30)

Jesus then tells the scribe that the other great commandment is to “love thy neighbor as thyself.” (Mark 12: 31)

Paul reminds, “Now the end of the commandment is love out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned.” (1 Timothy 1: 5)
