Do you love Me more than these?

Deuteronomy 6:4-5
“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might."

Primal wounds of the heart.
Cynicism of the mind.
Paralysis of the will.
Overcrowding of the soul.


“Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?”

Question of the day: have you ever thought what Jesus meant by 'more than these', and what are the implications?
