~ connecting lives ~
What kind of relationship should we have with our neighbors? It's in the Bible, Luke 10:27-28, TLB. "It says," he replied, "that you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind. And you must love your neighbor just as much as you love yourself." "Right!" Jesus told him. "Do this and you shall live!"
What does it mean to love our neighbors as ourselves? It's in the Bible, Romans 13:9, TLB. "If you love your neighbor as much as you love yourself you will not want to harm or cheat him, or kill him or steal from him. And you won't sin with his wife or want what is his, or do anything else the Ten Commandments say is wrong. All ten are wrapped up in this one, to love your neighbor as you love yourself."
