Loving Your Neighbor

Application: I think if we could be completely honest with ourselves society makes it very easy to forget that loving your neighbor is one of the greatest commandments that we are to keep as followers of Christ. We can sometimes quickly push ourselves away from others if they don’t match our vibe or if they’re not viewed highly when it comes to social status. We focus on their differences instead of showing kindness and being compassionate. If you call yourself a Christ follower a believer of Jesus Christ than you are to obey all of His commandments. I know it’s easier said than done but if our goal in life is to be soul winners for Christ and it starts with showing love to the person next to you just like Jesus does for us every single day.

Matthew 22:36-39
“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “Love the Lord your God with all your soul and with all your heart and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
