One of the greatest detriments of our fallen nature is pride. I am not referring to pride in our work or doing a good job, but rather the pride that says, "I am right!" Our egos often separate us from one another. The second great command is to love our neighbor as our self. We are all made in the image of God. We all have value before God. We may not agree, but we can do so lovingly. To make sure that we maintain the love we should have for one another, Jesus reminded us that we can't be right with God if we are being disobedient to Him. If we want to give a gift to God for all His goodness, we should first be obedient. That often means to forgive someone of the wrongs they have done us, or apologize for offending a person. Relationships must be restored before God will accept our gift.
