Jump to another verse
"The commandments, "You shall not commit adultery, You shall not kill, You shall not steal, You shall not covet," and any other commandment, are summed up in this sentence, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself." "
Romans 13:1 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.
Romans 13:2 Therefore he who resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment.
Romans 13:3 For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of him who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval,
Romans 13:4 for he is God's servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain; he is the servant of God to execute his wrath on the wrongdoer.
Romans 13:5 Therefore one must be subject, not only to avoid God's wrath but also for the sake of conscience.
Romans 13:6 For the same reason you also pay taxes, for the authorities are ministers of God, attending to this very thing.
Romans 13:7 Pay all of them their dues, taxes to whom taxes are due, revenue to whom revenue is due, respect to whom respect is due, honor to whom honor is due.
Romans 13:8 Owe no one anything, except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law.
Romans 13:9 The commandments, "You shall not commit adultery, You shall not kill, You shall not steal, You shall not covet," and any other commandment, are summed up in this sentence, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself."
Romans 13:10 Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
Romans 13:11 Besides this you know what hour it is, how it is full time now for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed;
Romans 13:12 the night is far gone, the day is at hand. Let us then cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light;
Romans 13:13 let us conduct ourselves becomingly as in the day, not in reveling and drunkenness, not in debauchery and licentiousness, not in quarreling and jealousy.
Romans 13:14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires.

amen that is the true love of God... i try to love everyone the way Christ loves me and that comes with forgivness and mercy :)

I think loving neighbor as self does fulfill many of the Do Not Commandments because we get in a lot of trouble either lifting ourselves above our neighbors or lifting them above us. The only cure is to Love God First. Proverbs confirms this with wisdom. Do not think too highly of yourself or too lowly.
God Loves all of us, but we are all an offense to Him, without the covering of blood of Jesus.

Amen...I think it helps when we consider that a stranger is just a friend we havn't met yet

I love Jesus for his is my life, he has kept me, I love to praise and worship him, when i praise and worship him he increases my strength

What a different place our world would be if this "golden rule" was obeyed! From cover to cover the Word of God tells of how important love is!
1Corinthians 13:4-7
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. :)

Owe no anything, except to love one another, for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law. Very powerful words I am a shepherd for the lord, We are needed even more in theses hard times, so keep passing on the word of God this will strengthen our nation.

Good way to start my day

The only way to live on earth is learning through Bible.

Lord Jesus help us! How many of us have commited these and broken these commandments? Especiall loving my neighbor as myself...Food for thought???Do i really love myself the way I would have to say maybe not too much if Im not loving my neighbor the way I am commanded by God to show LOVE...

Every "Do not..." do to your neighbors in the ten commandments of God have only one antidote... LOVE your NEIGHBOR as YOURSELF. Loving oneself is an effortless behavior of natural man and in fact that is his nature. Jesus, when asked by the expert of the Law what is the greatest commandment. He said, first Love God with all of your being and the second is ‘Love your neighbor as yourself’ (Matt.22:35-40). I believe Jesus, in His omniscient characteristic, stated that whatever commandment of God to man ought not to do to his neighbor is just by looking at the perspective of how he values or loves himself. Therefore valuing, respecting and not doing any harm to the neighbor will such be an effortless conduct as well.

1 way to try nd keep this is not to keep grudges nd put urself in the shoes of the next person wether in need or we come across them daily.a little prayer will go along way too

the last commandment is hard to fufill....its hard to love your enemies who have done nothing but damage for no reason.

My Sunday school class is doing 40 Days of Love with the Rick Warren six week study series......transforming on how toforgi ve and love!!!
