If I was teaching this lesson, I would begin with the video clip from Elder Holland’s talk (embedded on the left), “The First Great Commandment.” Then, ask:
Why is loving God the first and great commandment?
What acts does Elder Holland suggest we perform to show our love for God?
How do you show love for God in your daily acts?
One early Christian mystic, Julian of Norwich wrote, “The greatest honor we can give Almighty God is to live gladly because of the knowledge of his love.”
What does her statement mean to you?
