The second is like it.

Matthew 22:34-46

New Revised Standard Version
22:34 When the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together,

22:35 and one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question to test him.

22:36 “Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?”

22:37 He said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’

22:38 This is the greatest and first commandment.

22:39 And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’

22:40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”

22:41 Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them this question:

22:42 “What do you think of the Messiah? Whose son is he?” They said to him, “The son of David.”

22:43 He said to them, “How is it then that David by the Spirit calls him Lord, saying,

22:44 ‘The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit at my right hand, until I put your enemies under your feet”‘?

22:45 If David thus calls him Lord, how can he be his son?”

22:46 No one was able to give him an answer, nor from that day did anyone dare to ask him any more questions.

    Sometimes we put questions to God presuming we already know the answer but like the pharisees, if we listen and hear God’s answer we are silenced, if we are true to ourselves we soon realise how intense and precise Jesus is with us – no beating about the bush!
    Dear Jesus give us the grace to humble ourselves before you and to bow down to your word which is always there to guide us, give us the wisdom to recognize that which is meant for us and give us the power to respond to your great love for us by loving You above all and by loving our neighbour as ourselves – not an easy task – but with you on our side how can we fail! Thank you Lord for accepting us always! Praise be the Lord !
