The 1st and Greatest Commandment

"Hear, O Israel! Adonai is our God – Adonai alone."

Sh'ma Yisrael! Adonai Eloheinu - Adonai Echad.

Sh'ma — listen, or hear and do
Yisrael — Israel, in the sense of the people or congregation
Adonai — often translated as "LORD", it is read in place of YWHW out of respect for the tetragram of God's Holy Name
Eloheinu — the plural 1st person possessive of Elohim, meaning “our God”.
Echad — the unified and cardinal number one

My ministry challenge for this week!

"'If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?' If the Answer is 'no' for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something."
