Love thy neighbor

If I make the effort to love just one person today, I will help dissipate the anger, hate, and violence in our world.

Lord, help me to be a part of the solution to the divisions in our world, country, communities, and families.

Jesus replied, “The first is this: Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is Lord alone! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.
The second is this:
You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.” Mark 12: 29-31

Love thy neighbor

When I love my neighbor as myself, I love the Lord, my God, with my whole heart, soul, and mind.

When I forget to treat myself and others with reverence, I have forgotten the reverence due to God.

Thus says the LORD: “You shall not molest or oppress an alien, for you were once aliens yourselves in the land of Egypt. You shall not wrong any widow or orphan.” Exodus 22:21-22
