Lu 10:27 So he answered and said," 'You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,' and 'your neighbor as yourself.'"
Jesus tested a lawyer here, with commands that are simple and smart.
He checked to see how much he wanted eternal life; this tested his heart.
The commands are powerful indeed, but the last part may be much for some.
We love ourselves, God says, but to love others the same way, made him glum. (RP)
