Mk 12:28-34

The scribe’s sincerity and honesty are revealed by his desire to understand Jesus’ “bottom line.” In response to the question posed, Jesus recounts the Shema from Deuteronomy and the command to love neighbor from Leviticus, combining the two into a beautiful summary of the entire law. Love of God and neighbor together are the core of God’s commandments.

Love of self cannot be left out of the equation. We are made in the image and likeness of God, deserving care and respect of our bodies, minds and hearts.
