3 Q. How do you come to know your misery?
A. The law of God tells me.
4 Q. What does God’s law require of us?
A. Christ teaches us this in summary in Matthew 22– You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the law and the prophets.
5 Q. Can you live up to all this perfectly?
A. No. I have a natural tendency to hate God and my neighbor.
