Jesus said the second of the two greatest commandments is to “love your neighbor as yourself.” He also warned, “And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold” (Matthew 24:12).
We’re living in an age where love is growing cold, and being replaced all too often by bitterness, aggression, hatred, violence and other evils, as God’s law is despised and rejected.
Regardless, God’s commandments still stand, and those who love their neighbors in accordance with God’s instructions will reap rewards now and in the ages to come. Who is your “neighbor”? And how are you to love your neighbor? Principles we can apply to this precept are found in Scripture, as we seek to apply God’s word in learning how God would have us love our neighbors.
