Deuteronomy 6:4-5

So I am reading in Deuteronomy now and I just read one of my favorite passages… although it seems as if I am doing that all of the time. The passage is Deuteronomy 6:4-5 “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one! You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.”

This made me think of when Jesus quoted this passage. He was asked what the greatest commandment was and this passage was His reply. I really like how He quotes verse 4 first. I never heard it as much growing up… but there is just something wonderful there.
