Love God, Love Your People

"Love God, love Your people. it's not advice so much as a command of the most uncompromising sort-the structure of the Decalogue, the substance of Jesus' summary of the law. Get that right, and the rest follows; if it doesn't follow, what is missing will ultimately show itself to be less than essential. Get that wrong, and in the end, all the achievements apart from it-every spiffy sermon, every leap in the membership rolls-will reveal themselves for the dust that they are."

Marguerite Shuster Ministry March 2008

Even though you can summarise it in a simple statement, it's still a difficult calling.
