I have been studying Romans this summer and one concept has stood out to me. We are taught when we are little that we are to live by the Ten Commandments. You know like do not murder, steal or covet. But what about what Paul says in Romans 13:9 right after those few commandments. He tells us to love our neighbors as ourselves. And then goes on to say that Love does no wrong to a neighbor. Well who is our neighbor? Does Paul mean physically those who live next door or does he mean everyone? If we all lived in biblical times, there would be no shootings just because they don't like that person. What happened to this world? Why do we kill instead of love? Why do we hate instead of showing kindness? I challenge each of you to take time to remember that we need to love everyone. No matter if they live next door or not. Would you hit yourself? Or Kill yourself? Or even just say hateful things about yourself? Certainly not! So why do we do it to other people? Love someone today, tomorrow and for life!
