I’m honestly baffled why many don’t appear to be taking the coronavirus pandemic seriously, and why some seem to imagine that it’s really just about politics.  The COVID-19 virus doesn’t care who is elected president this year.  It doesn’t care about making America great again or about dragging the country down.

When a lawyer asked the Savior which of all the commandments was the greatest, Jesus could have chosen any of the many examples of divine commands from the Old Testament, from the law of Moses, from the Ten Commandments.  Instead, He summarized all of the commandments with these two:

“Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

“This is the first and great commandment.

“And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself” (Matthew 22:37–39).

“We cannot truly love God,” President Thomas S. Monson taught, “if we do not love our fellow travelers on this mortal journey.”
