Here’s a question for the theologically astute:
I’m teaching tonight on Deut. 6, the Shema: Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. Moses delivers this word from God to the children of Israel as a reminder for them as they enter the promised land. My question is this: how are we to make sense of God’s command that we love Him? If love is demanded, is it really love? I think I have an answer to this, but I wanted to get your thoughts on this. I always appreciate the times you all help collaborate on a passage with me. Help me out here.
