The commandments, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not kill, You shall not steal, You shall not covet (have an evil desire), and any other commandment, are summed up in the single command, You shall love your neighbor as [you do] yourself. [Exod. 20:13-17; Lev. 19:18.] Love does no wrong to one’s neighbor [it never hurts anybody]. Therefore love meets all the requirements and is the fulfilling of the Law.” Romans 13:9-10 AMP

Love gives the other the first choice. In other words, before you do or say something to someone, you must first of all consider of what impact this is going to make to the person. That does not mean you should not speak the truth to them. Love is not about speaking your own emotional truth. It’s about speaking the truth of God’s Word in love without trying to make your point.

The reason why many offense among fellow born again children of God is because we are still trying to prove our point towards one another. We don’t consider the effect of our action causes towards one another every time we make our point towards one another. We end up hurting one another.

It’s about time for us to reconsider how we handle one another in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Let’s learn to allow the Holy Spirit help us even as we relate to one another in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

For the whole Law [concerning human relationships] is complied with in the one precept, You shall love your neighbor as [you do] yourself. [Lev. 19:18.] But if you bite and devour one another [in partisan strife], be careful that you [and your whole fellowship] are not consumed by one another.” Galatians 5:14-15 AMP

Let’s pray together:

Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your Word. Help me by Your Spirit to treat my brother or sister of like faith in love and even the man in the world without trying to always make my point in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen.
