God wants all His creatures to be obedient to His Law because it is good and because keeping the Law is the most loving thing that can be done. Christ is asked in this passage what is the greatest commandment, His response is that Love is the greatest commandment: love to God and love to man. We are to love God with everything we are and everything we have and we are to love our neighbor as we love ourselves, seeking their good and blessing in all things.
