…Jesus says that the first commandment is to love God with heart and soul and mind and strength. It is the first commandment because it is the one we always break when we break anything else. Always. It is awful. When you cheat on your income tax, the party most offended is God. If you cheat on your spouse, the party most offended is God. If you nurture bitterness, the party most offended is God. That is what makes sin sin, and we must be reconciled to this God.
