This video just blew me away! It even changed my definition of what loving God with all my mind looks like.
Matthew 22:35-37 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
35 And one of them, an expert in the law, asked a question to test Him: 36 “Teacher, which command in the law is the greatest?”
37 He said to him, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.
I had always thought of it as just book work; reading the Bible, learning about God’s word, and reasons to believe in God, but I now believe that using your mind to end human suffering has to play a big part in this. Fr. Pedro Opeka took a people in a state of misery, they were actually living in a garbage dump, and gave them a life where joy and hope is possible! He taught them basic reading and writing, how to grow their own food, how to make their own houses…and about the God who loves them so much that he was willing to die for him! The change in their community is touching beyond belief, and loving the Lord with his mind played a HUGE part in their transformation!
