Deuteronomy 6:5 is a central command in the Old Testament, and it is repeated by Jesus in the New Testament as the greatest commandment (Matthew 22:37-38). This verse calls us to love God wholeheartedly, with every aspect of our being. It encompasses not only our emotions but also our intellect, our will, and our actions.
Loving God with all our heart, soul, and strength is an ongoing process that requires intentionality and commitment. As we grow in our relationship with God, our love for Him should deepen and become more fully integrated into every aspect of our lives.
