Today I was thinking about what it means to love your neighbor as yourself.
I’m in Deuteronomy 22 but somehow I got to Romans.
Owe nothing to anyone except to love one another;
for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law.
"YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT ADULTERY,
YOU SHALL NOT MURDER,
YOU SHALL NOT STEAL,
YOU SHALL NOT COVET,"
and if there is any other commandment,
it is summed up in this saying,
"YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF."
Love does no wrong to a neighbor;
therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
Do this, knowing the time,
that it is already the hour for you to awaken from sleep;
for now salvation is nearer to us than when we believed.
The night is almost gone,
and the day is near.
Therefore let us lay aside the deeds of darkness
and put on the armor of light.
Let us behave properly as in the day,
not in carousing and drunkenness,
not in sexual promiscuity and sensuality,
not in strife and jealousy.
But put on the Lord Jesus Christ,
and make no provision for the flesh
in regard to its lusts.
More than anything I would like to encourage you in your walk with God!
