We are in a sermon series called “Starting The Year Off Right.” Today I’m speaking on “Unpacking Emotional Baggage.”


God’s greatest commands to us are found in Matthew 22:37-40. "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."


Jesus said that the most important thing is life is love. If we succeed at every other area of life, but we fail to love, we’ve missed the meaning of life. But many of us do not love God or others like we know we should because we are weighed down with excess emotional baggage.
