What I Believe - Love Thy Neighbor

". . . Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself." (Matthew 22:39)

I love this commandment, but the part that I think is the most important is the part about loving our enemies, not because it's an easy task for me. Oh, no! And not because I like difficult tasks either. It's because one of my greatest friends was first my enemy. If we both hadn't chosen to love rather than hate we would have missed out on some of the most fun moments of our lives.

"Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven..." (Matthew 5:43-45)

This is what I believe.
