"Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one, and as for you, you shall Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength [mo’ed]."🌿

“‘Me'od.’ Interestingly, this is the only place in the Bible "Me'od" is translated as strength. Everywhere else, it means "very" or "much." It's an adverb that intensifies the meanings of other words. While it may sound funny, to love God with all your strength "Me'od" is to love him with all your "Muchness."  It means to love God with everything you have, devoting every possibility, opportunity, and capacity to honor God and to love your neighbor as yourself.” - The Bible Project
