6/25 Daily Devotional

Chapel Devotional

Matthew 22:34-40

When the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together, and one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question to test him. “Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?” 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.’ This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”


Mas los fariseos, al enterarse de que había tapado la boca a los saduceos, se reunieron en grupo, y uno de ellos le preguntó con ánimo de ponerle a prueba: “Maestro, ¿cuál es el mandamiento mayor de la Ley?” El le dijo: “Amarás al Señor, tu Dios, con todo tu corazón, con toda tu alma y con toda tu mente. Este es el mayor y el primer mandamiento. El segundo es semejante a éste: Amarás a tu prójimo como a ti mismo. De estos dos mandamientos penden toda la Ley y los Profetas.”


예수께서 사두개인들로 대답할 수 없게 하셨다 함을 바리새인들이 듣고 모였는데 그 중에 한 율법사가 예수를 시험하여 묻되 `선생님이여 율법 중에 어느 계명이 크니이까?' 예수께서 가라사대 네 마음을 다하고 목숨을 다하고 뜻을 다하여 주 너의 하나님을 사랑하라 하셨으니 이것이 크고 첫째 되는 계명이요 둘째는 그와 같으니 네 이웃을 네 몸과 같이 사랑하라 하셨으니 이 두 계명이 온 율법과 선지자의 강령이니라


Greatest Love of the universe,

     through your Word and example we have the command to love.

We don’t always get it right, but you are there to guide us back to the pathway with mercy.

Teach us again to show your grace in places we don’t want to go,

     to not hoard your mercy, like it’s ours to own,

     and to express your loving truth at all times.

Help us to live your commandment.
