“Thou shalt love thy neighbour.” – Matthew 5: V43
Beloved, maybe you are rolling in riches and your neighbour is poor, still, “Love thy neighbour.” You see every day the low-estates of your neighbour, but unto you has God given wealth, that you should share, so think no low thoughts concerning your neighbour, but be kind and share. Learn to be good to others and know that God is the one that has given you power to get wealth, and do not look down upon your neighbour, and wish him no harm. “Thou shalt love thy neighbour.”
If, you are rich, and resides near the poor, do not scorn to call them neighbour. Show them the love of Christ that is in you. In what way are they inferior to you? They are far more your equals than your inferiors, for “God hath made of one blood all people that dwell upon the face of the earth.” They are men, and what art thou more than that? Take heed that you love your neighbour even though if he should be in rags, or sunken in the depths of poverty.
But, perhaps, you say, “I cannot love my neighbours, because for all I do they return ingratitude and contempt.” So much the more room for the heroism of love. He who dares the most, shall win the most; and if rough be thy path of love, tread it boldly, still loving thy neighbours through thick and thin. Heap coals of fire on their heads, and if they be hard to please, seek not to please them, but to please thy Master; and remember if they spurn thy love, thy Master hath not spurned it, and thy deed is as acceptable to him as if it had been acceptable to them. Love thy neighbour, for in so doing thou art following the footsteps of Christ. Amen!
JESUS LOVES YOU.
Start your day with Jesus. Beloved, have a blessed day.
