Why is it important to love? When you think about the call of the Christian throughout the pages of the scriptures, we are frequently called to love. Not only this, when the character of our God is described, we are frequently told that God is love. When Jesus was asked what is the great commandment, Jesus responded, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the great and foremost commandment. The second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets” (Matthew 22:36-40).
