Love Your Neighbor As Yourself

LOVE THY NEIGHBOR2“For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.”  Romans 13:9

When we consider what the Bible teaches about loving our neighbor as we love ourselves, we see that all of God’s will can be fulfilled in that one simple rule. If we love our neighbor, we will not commit adultery, we will not kill, we will not steal, we will not gossip, we will not lie, we will not judge, and we will not hate. Often times we lose sight of how easily we can fulfill most of what God commands us to do, if we just love each other.
