Good morning, this is Topher from Washington Church of Christ, bringing you a positive message minute. 

About 1984 years ago, give or take a few, Jesus was in Jerusalem during what we now call the "Holy Week" of Passover.  On Tuesday of that week, the man who was the Christ, the Messiah, was teaching on weddings, marriage, and the Kingdom of God.  These teachings stunned and astonished some of the religious elites called the Sadducees. (Matthew 22:33)

Upon seeing that their political and theological opponents were stumped, the Pharisees got together and put one expert of the law to test Jesus with a question.  He asked, "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the law?"   (Matt 22:36)  Jesus gave my favorite reply to all the many questions he was asked here in Matthew 22.  Here's the Topher summary of what Jesus said in just seven short words.  

The Son of God basically said, "Loving God and Loving People fulfills everything."(summary of Matthew 22:37-40, see also Deuteronomy 6:4-6 for the quote in the Old Testament)

This Tuesday, we could do no better than to focus the truth that Jesus shared on a Tuesday so long ago.  Friends, simply endeavor to Love God and Love People today.  You'll be glad you did.
