    "Teacher, which is the most important commandment in the law of Moses?"

    Jesus replied:
    " 'You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.'
    This is the first and greatest commandment.
    A second is equally important:
    'Love your neighbor as yourself.'
    The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments."
    Matthew 22: 36 - 40

    Not that it's necessarily wrong, but I have to wonder if the first commandment is a pious addition to the original saying. Notice how Paul only seems to know about the second one.

    It's because you need the second one in order to be good at the first one.

    You have to wholly practise this in order to understand it, too, so there is no further explanation than this.
