Romans 13:8-10 tells us, “8 Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law. 9 The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not covet,”[a] and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”[b] 10 Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.” We studied most of chapter 13 the past Wednesday night with the youth and when we arrived at this passage one of the discussion points was the part of verse 8 that reads, “for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law.” I want to share with you all part of that discussion and how it can impact adults as well. We can be an active, giving, involved part of our church community and our world, however if we don’t do those things out of love what we have done is empty. Some of the youth went on to add that if we do things out of love that will impact others more than anything we will say or do! They also discussed the part of “loving your neighbor as yourself” and how that is so hard to do when we are competitive and driven. We discovered, through our discussion that the Bible doesn’t say we can’t strive to be the best or to achieve great things…….we simply shouldn’t acquire those things at someone else’s expense! We all need to be reminded from time to time that regardless of the situation if we try to approach things with the love of Christ we will come out farther ahead than we could ever imagine.
