Holy Monday

During Holy Week, CWM is practicing the spiritual discipline of searching the scriptures. Each day on the website you will find a verse from Matthew chapter 22-26 which details the in-between time from Palm Sunday to Good Friday.
  • Take time to read the verse.
  • Sit in silence for a few moments to contemplate what you have read.
  • What word or phrase stands out to you?
  • Read the verse again.
  • Sit in silence for a few moments to contemplate what you have read.
  • Ask yourself once again, what word or phrase stands out to you this time.
  • Feel free to leave a comment on the blog with the insights, questions or thoughts that came to you as you read the scripture.
Matthew 22: 36-40

"Teacher, which commandment in the law is greatest?"

Jesus said, "'You shall love your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.' This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets."

I was overwhelmingly surprised that it wasn't until preparing to preach last Sunday that I noticed the words, "and the second is like it." How amazing to see the connection between loving neighbor and loving God so obvious in a scripture often quoted...but it hit me like a ton of bricks "and the second is like it"!
