If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also. -1 John 4:20-21 (KJV)
Time and again, our Lord reminds us that the biggest thing we can do in life is love others. What is the second greatest commandment Jesus told us to adhere to? We are to love others as we love ourselves (Matthew 22:39). I know for me in my life, this is often an area I fall short in. Fortunately, with God’s grace, I am able to strive toward that goal.
Pure and undefiled religion before our God and Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself unstained by the world. -James 1:27 (HCSB)
