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.
