4 Hear, O Israel: The Lord is our God, the Lord alone. 5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might. 6 Keep these words that I am commanding you today in your heart. 7 Recite them to your children and talk about them when you are at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you rise. 8 Bind them as a sign on your hand, fix them as an emblem on your forehead, 9 and write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
We are continuing our discussion on the spiritual practice of following.
- You must submit yourself to God to belong to the body.
- You must accept diversity and no part of the body is superior.
- You must step out of self centeredness and selfishness into regard for others.
- You must be able to take the well being of the whole into account.
