Showing love toward God and our neighbor is acheived by exercising the weightier matters of the law - judgement, mercy and faith. Judgement is lacking in society today becuase there is no standard. Mercy has no meaning separate from judgement and repentance. Are we spiritual cowards lacking the courage to exercise judgement, mercy and faith?
