The Greatest Commands

In my choir we have a little four part piece that we sing called The Greatest Commands.

– – –

This piece is very simple, but it seems as though the simple things in life are the most true. We take many things for granted, but we also make things out to be greater than they are.

– – –

Today, I was looking at this song–Greatest Commands–and realized just how true these words are that I sing so often.

Love one another for love is of God

He who loves is born of God and knows God

He who does not love does not know God

For God is love

God is love

My question for You: What simple thing do you maybe take for granted but means much to you?



I am a young girl in my teen years, pushing through life with the help and encouragement of my family and friends. But more than that, the Lord God is before me creating a path for me to follow. This blog shows my struggles and victories in life, the things I love or dislike. I hope you enjoy browsing through my blog. Before you leave, I hope you understand more fully how much the Lord Almighty means to me.

  1. This is quite beautiful and quite true ❤ Thank you so much for sharing. May I please write it down?
    I take a lot for granted it seems. My electricity and gas that power my home and make most things possible.
    A simple thing, but hard to aquire at times: silence. Moments of quiet that I need so much for my mind and heart and spirit are easy to take for granted but a precious beyond words.

    1. Thank you for sharing! And of course, write it down!
      There are definitely so many things one can take for granted… it just reminds me of how blessed I really am, even on my lowest days. 😊

  2. Some things I take for granted but then realize I’m doing that and I try to not take certain things for granted.
    I could list many things I do and have which I use or enjoy basically without thinking that it’s something others may not have.
    Here I’ll just answer your question by saying “Use of arms and legs.” It means a lot to me because I literally use these every single day to walk run, jump, grab, grip, hold, lift, push, pull, carry, and do others things with the ability to use my arms and legs. I rely on these to do work daily and can take for granted what I have available as a result of having properly functioning hands and legs. That’s something I want to not take for granted anymore but rather thank God for this body and all of its functioning parts which I can use to learn to do all things for His glory. It’s a learning process, with failures on the way but I’m trusting He will teach me to do it because it’s a vital part of the Christian life.
    That’s my answer, not a very short one but there it is.
