Favorite verse(s): Jesus replied, “The most important commandment is this: ‘Listen, O Israel! The Lord our God is the one and only Lord. And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength. The second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. No other commandment is greater than these.”
Mark 12:29-31 (NLT)
Why this verse is important to Allison: This verse pretty much sums up what God wants us to do: love God and love people. This is the mission of my life and my family. I desire to love God and love the people He has put in my life. I’ve come to realize that relationships are the only real thing of significance and value. At the end of the day, how I treat others and my posture towards God, will count more than any accomplishments I may have made. Did I have an attitude of kindness and compassion or one of selfishness and unforgiveness? Did I take time to be present with my son, husband, and Heavenly Father? I so want to do life well, but I often stumble and learn as I go. I am thankful for the people, experiences, and God’s Word that continues to teach me how to live a life of love.
