wfw - Loving God and your Neighbor as yourself

Leviticus 19:18 "Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against one of your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord."

There is one thing for sure: You will never love your neighbor as yourself until you have first learned to love God with all of your heart. So, how do we learn to love God? First by finding out who He is. We must know Him before we will ever love Him, and once we have come to know Him and His great love and compassion for us. our heart will cry out , "Yes, Lord, I do love you and want to serve You." Then His great love will flow through us, reaching our spouses, our neighbors whom you neither know nor like, and those whom we work with. Loving God is the key. May God help us to know Him and to love Him so we can love our neighbors.

    What a great photo for this encouraging Bible verse. And such good points! My grandkids and I have been enjoying Bible memory verses activities for grandparents and their grandchildren this summer, centered on 1 Corinthians 13, Love is patient and kind...!

    Such great truth, and the more I know about Him, the more I want to know! How I look forward to spending eternity getting to know Him! For now, I hope my life reflects his love to others and that I will love them as He does; this I can only do with Him.
