When asked by a lawyer, “which is the great commandment in the law?”, Christ recited part of the daily Jewish prayer, the Shema: love God with all one’s heart, soul, and mind. To further establish its importance, this commandment was also revealed to the Nephites in the Book of Mormon and was again revealed in this dispensation by modern prophets. All of God’s children are to know and understand this first and great commandment: to love God with all thy heart, with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. The Book of Mormon, like the New Testament, powerfully commands us to “love God with all your might, mind and strength”, and modern revelation can help us know how to fulfill this commandment.
