34 But the Pharisees, hearing that he had caused the Sadducees to be silent, came together as one.
35 And one of them, a doctor of the law, questioned him, to test him:
36 "Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?"
37 Jesus said to him: " 'You shall love the Lord your God from all your heart, and with all your soul and with all your mind.'
38 This is the greatest and first commandment.
39 But the second is similar to it: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.'
40 On these two commandments the entire law depends, and also the prophets."
1 Thessalonians 1:5-10
5 For all of you are sons of light and sons of daytime; we are not of nighttime, nor of darkness.
6 Therefore, let us not sleep, as the rest do. Instead, we should be vigilant and sober.
7 For those who sleep, sleep in the night; and those who are inebriated, are inebriated in the night.
8 But we, who are of the daylight, should be sober, being clothed with the breastplate of faith and of charity and having, as a helmet, the hope of salvation.
9 For God has not appointed us for wrath, but for the acquisition of salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,
10 who died for us, so that, whether we watch, or whether we sleep, we may live in union with him.
