The Debt of Love

Passage Romans 13:8-10


Father, I owe love to my fellow man, as you have said in your Word. What an endless debt! How can I keep your command to love my neighbor as myself?
What would it be like to live in a world where such unselfishness prevailed?
Ah, it would be heaven on earth, therefore such behavior is a precondition of our heavenly inheritance.
But Lord, be gentle in your judgment toward me. I fall so far short on this. Love would absolutely do no wrong to one's neighbor - never taking anything that was his, or even wanting to.
So fill me with love, so that I may fulfill your law. In the name of Jesus, help me, Lord. Amen.
