“But I say, love your enemies!” (Matthew 5:44; NLT).
“Love your neighbour as yourself” (James 2:8; NLT).
To acquire wisdom is to love oneself (Proverbs 19:8; NLT).
“And you must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength” (Mark 12:30, NLT).
But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love (1 John 4:8; NLT).
How can we love our enemies,
If we don’t love our neighbours?
And how can we love our neighbours,
If we don’t love ourselves?
And how can we love ourselves,
If we don’t love you?
For you are love.
