In a reread of this verse I notice that “commandment” (4687) is singular, not plural. I wonder if that is significant. The obvious answer is “Yes.” Everything God does in transmitting His word to us is significant. Many of you will automatically know how Jesus dealt with this. He was asked what was the greatest commandment. His answer was twofold.
(Matthew 22:37-40 KJV) Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.These are really two sides of the same coin. Our culture tries to define love without the love of God as a foundation. Culture is falling apart. Too often the church ignores their neighbor. The church becomes weak. Blessings come from keeping the commandment.
So? It goes against everything you see and hear in the world around you but focus on God, let it overflow into your neighborhood and keep your soul. Sounds like a good deal to me.
