Then from the cloud came a voice that said, “This is my Son, my Chosen; listen to him!” When the voice had spoken, Jesus was found alone. And they kept silent and in those days told no one any of the things they had seen.
We humans don’t listen to directions very well. We have been given two commandments on which Jesus said hang all of the law and the prophets, Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and love your neighbor as yourself. Most of our world’s problems stem from our ignoring either one, or both of these commandments.
