Reading 2ROM 13:8-10
Brothers and sisters:
Owe nothing to anyone, except to love one another;
for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.
The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery;
you shall not kill; you shall not steal; you shall not covet, ”
and whatever other commandment there may be,
are summed up in this saying, namely,
“You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
Love does no evil to the neighbor;
hence, love is the fulfillment of the law.
It’s not love and do what you want (as long as you love, it’s all right); but if you love people, you won’t do these things — adultery, murder and its affinities, theft, and “coveting,” that is, its close cousin envy.
I’d like to hear this point made tomorrow. I’d like to know it’s heard from a lot of pulpits.
