One of the Pharisees, an expert in the law, tested Him with a question: “Teacher, which commandment is the greatest in the Law?” Jesus answered: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind. This is the first and most important commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All of the Law and the Prophets can be summed up in these two commands”

-Matthew 22:35-40

Love is !

Without oxen a stable stays clean, but you need a strong ox for a large harvest.

-Proverbs 14:4
