“Of all the commandments, which is the most important?"
"The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’
The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”
- Mark 12:28-31
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.

- Matthew 6:19-21
