Daily Carson 3/13/08

Here is today's quote from Carson's A Call to Spiritual Reformation (see Intro):

This is Don Carson
’s response to the popular poem “Abou ben Adam
No thinking Christian will long identify with such sentimental twaddle. In the teaching of Jesus, the first command is to love God with heart and soul and mind and strength; the second is to love one's neighbor as oneself (Matt. 22:37-40). Jesus does not suggest that the two commands are identical. Far from it: he enumerates two commands and sets them out in terms of their relative priorities: first and second. (p. 65)
