We have all meet people who seem to "cut" through the "smoke" and get right to the "ROOT" OF THE MATTER. They do not "mince" their carefully chosen words which could compromise their meaning. Their seemingly "radical" vision reduces everything to its "simplest", "undistorted" TRUTH. Matthew 22:37-39, "You shall love the LORD your GOD with all your heart, all your Soul and all your mind...You shall love your neighbor as yourself". Could it be that by keeping these two commandments to their fullest, that we would keep all the other commandments and Scriptural instruction of the Bible? Is it possible that we have been trying to live the "letter" of the "law", while totally missing the SPIRIT? How can we Love GOD for HIS own sake, and Love others for their sake by our own strength? This kind of Love is DIVINE LOVE poured into our heart by the HOLY SPIRIT. NOW THAT'S THE ROOT OF THE MATTER.
