Jesus throws down the dividing prejudices of nationality, and teaches universal love, without distinction of race, merit or rank. A man's neighbor is every one that needs help. –Geikie
Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Matthew 22:36-39
Loving people is the thing Jesus does best. Because He loved us, He grieves over our sin sick state. Because He loved us, He glorifies His Father. Because He loved us, He gives us eternal life. Love is the motivation of the Lord. What is your motivation this morning? I know I need a push to love people sometimes!
