Evidence of the Greatest Command

Mark 12:30-31 & I Corinthians 13:4a, 6b, 7-8

When asked "Which is the most important commandment?", Jesus  said,"‘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 [spouse] as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these." - Mark 12:30-31
