“What must we do?”
This was the main question of the those who listened to John the Baptist’s preaching or proclamation, which we read last Sunday (Luke 3: 1-6): “Prepare a way for the Lord. Make His path straight.” Three sets of people stepped forward and put this question to him: “What must we do?”
“’Go, sell everything you have and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come follow Me.’ But his face fell at these words and he went away sad, for he was a man of great wealth” (Mark 10: 21-22).
“Which is the first of all the commandments? … This is the first: ‘Listen, Israel, the Lord our God is the One Lord, and you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘You must love your neighbour as yourself’” (Mark 12: 29-32)
