For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
Love and respect for other people, even if you don’t know them or like them, is what keeps the world going. It’s what keeps families together, friendships alive, and it’s what turns enemies into friends. If you and I can’t forgive one another over earthly quarrels, why would you ask for Christ to forgive you for an entire lifetime? The commandments God gave His people… do not lie, do not steal, do not covet… you naturally abide by them when you love the people in your life. And it’s not about who deserves what; at the end of the day, we all deserve the same thing. Instead, it’s about taking the love, mercy, and forgiveness Jesus showed you, and paying it forward to others.
