29 “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” 32 “Well said, teacher,” the man replied. “You are right in saying that God is one and there is no other but him. 33 To love him with all your heart, with all your understanding and with all your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself is more important than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.” 34 When Jesus saw that he had answered wisely, he said to him, “You are not far from the

kingdom of
God.” And from then on no one dared ask him any more questions Our privilege to love God comes with the responsibility to share this love with others. It sets up the paradigm that for every privilege there is a responsibility. As a Disciple of Jesus Christ we have privileges and responsibilities We have the privilege of praying and having one on one conversation with our heavenly FatherWe have the responsibility of praying for people who are hurting all over the world We have the privilege of fellowshipping with each other and We have the responsibility to seek out those who have been missing from our fellowship 

We have the privilege of studying the scriptures to give us guidance in our daily lives We have the responsibility to apply what we learn in order to reflect the life of Jesus  We have the privilege of worshipping togetherWe have the responsibility to give a 10th of our earnings to support the ministry We have the privilege of enjoying a personal relationship with Jesus ChristWe also have the responsibility to share our relationship through lifestyle, conversation and our interaction with others.  Our privilege to love God comes with the responsibility to share that love with others.  We are blessed to be a blessing.  vote_small.jpg  You have the privilege and responsibility to vote.  Balancing my privileges and handling my responsibilities William T Chaney Jr
