How shall we live?

How does God want people to live? One common answer is that God tells people how to live, providing them a set of rules or divine commands to follow. Another common answer is that God wants people to subscribe to particular theological doctrines or beliefs. Both of those answers are wrong. God wants our hearts, i.e., to treasure our relationship with God and our neighbor. I develop this idea more fully in the sermon that I preached yesterday, available for reading here.
