Royal Law

Bookmark and Share

James 2:8 (NIV)
"If you really keep the ROYAL LAW found in Scripture, "Love your neighbor as yourself," you are doing right."


What does it really mean to love your neighbor as yourself?

And... who is your neighbor, anyway?
Friend, your neighbor is people!
The Royal Law simply means to treat other people as you would want to be treated.
God loves people.
When we treat others with kindness, love, humility, generosity, healing, encouragement, respect, honor and dignity... we honor God!
Jesus said in Luke 6:26 - "Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloke forbid not to take thy coat also. Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again. And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise." (KJV)
