   One of the beautiful mitzvot [commandments] in the Torah commands Israel to love God "with all your heart, all your soul, and all your might" [Deuteronomy 5:4]. Clearly, it is an important part of the Shema, which Jews read two times a day. But how can you force anyone to feel anything? For instance, dictators, who desire power, don't desire love; only fear. God desires both. Clearly, God desires love. For instance, powerful dictators, who want to portray themselves as idols [Kim Jung-Un being the most blatant example calling himself God] don't care what's in the heart. They just care about that power. But God clearly desires love from his followers to gush out of their hearts, not for his followers to be mindless zombies. Tune in, as I discuss loving God and God's love, which is the most pure love ever. For clearly, without the God of Israel, this world can NOT function.
