Title: The Greatest Commandment
Scripture: Matthew 22:34-40
Speaker: Tim Spanburg,

I. What does it mean to love God?
"I didn’t understand this idea of a God who says, ‘You have to acknowledge me. You have to say that I’m the best, and then I’ll give you eternal happiness. If you won’t, then you don’t get it!’ It seemed to be about ego. I can’t see God operating from ego, so it made no sense to me."
- Brad Pitt
"Wherever I am carried, my love is carrying me…"
- Augustine
"If you worship money and things, if they are where you tap real meaning in life, then you will never have enough, never feel you have enough...Worship your body and beauty and sexual allure and you will always feel ugly. And when time and age start showing, you will die a million deaths before they finally grieve you...Worship power, you will end up feeling weak and afraid, and you will need even more power over others to numb you to your own fear. Worship your intellect, being seen as smart, you will end up feeling stupid, a fraud, always on the very of being found out…"
- David Foster Wallace
II. What does it mean to love your neighbor?
"God’s great love and purposes for us are all worked out in messes in our kitchens and backyards, in storms and sins, blue skies, the daily work and dreams of our common lives. God works with us as we are and not as we should be or think we should be. God deals with us where we are and not where we would like to be."
- Eugene Peterson
III. How do you actually love God and your neighbor?
