The Great Commandment (over) The Great Commission

What could be the difference if this emphasis shift was purposefully presented in children's spiritual formation? Might this guide children toward:

- an authentic, free and responsive Love for God, Self and their Neighbors
- a healthy sense of self-love and acceptance vs. a critical condemning view from a constant comparison with others
- a sold-out, wholistic ‘love’ for THEIR God
- a commitment to a demonstrative love for one's neighbor,

Would not the fulfillment of the great commission then become a NATURAL outflow of these?
