Hi, I am Sam Carleton. I am a Disciple of Jesus Christ and Software Developer, husband, father of three, photographer, and small business owner and a number of other odds and ends things. I am creating this blog to share my reflections on how the spiritual and secular world intertwine.
It is my believe that the most important thing Jesus commanded us to do was live out the Great Commandment and the Great Commission, in that order. I firmly believe it all begins with both parts of the Great Commandment:
Jesus replied: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
— Matthew 22:37–40 (NIV)
The way I love my God with all my heart and with all my soul and with all my mind is by loving my neighbor as myself. And I hope to share how I do that through this blog.
