The first and greatest commandment along with the second like it can be boiled down to a single word; love. To paraphrase these commands, we are to love God with all of our heart, soul, and mind; and to love others as ourselves. Biblical counseling helps us to love both God and others. As counselors, we draw close to God as we study His word and apply His truth. As the gospel is revealed to us, we see the immeasurable love that God has for us as we revisit the cross and the sacrifice Jesus made for each of us.
