DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Love Your Neighbour
Love is one of those words the world has terribly bastardised or misunderstood. People do things that hurt someone else or debase someone else and pretend they love the person. A man was asked what his reaction would be if he caught his wife sleeping with another man. He was furious and could not imagine his wife to do such a thing because she loves him. Yet this man was having an adulterous relationship with another woman! He was claiming to love his wife and at the same time hurting her and his children. Besides, the man was also harming the woman with whom he was in an adulterous relation. If we truly love someone, we won’t steal from the person, we won’t defame the person through back-biting, etc. Christ shows us what genuine love is. To test if your action springs out of love, ask yourself if Christ would have done the same thing you are doing under the same circumstance.
Point of Emphasis: Love does no harm to a neighbour, therefore, love is the fulfillment of the law.
Prayer Point: Father, grant me the grace to truly love those around me.
