This week’s verse comes from Romans, one of Paul’s many letters that he wrote. This verse is pretty special to me, because it’s the verse that comes directly after verse 9, which says:

“The commandments ‘You shall not commit adultery,’ ‘You shall not murder,’ ‘You shall not steal,’ ‘You shall not covet,” and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.'”

That’s pretty important, but this week I’m thinking about the verse right after. Here it is:

“Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fullfillment of the law.”

It provides some more insight on the commandment “Love your neighbor as yourself! Because in all the other commandments we have No murder, No adultery, No disobeying your parents, No stealing. And all of those things would harm someone around you, or affect their life, meaning that harming your neighbor is a no no! So Love, which does NO harm to a neighbor, is fullfilling the law! Love is one thing in life that will never ever be wrong. So when you are showing love or kindness to a friend or family member, or even a stranger or enemy, you are fullfilling God’s will and law! Hope you enjoyed the verse, sorry if this post was a little small! So long!
