Love thy neighbour as thyself


Matthew 22: 37-40 Jesus said, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence.’ This is the most important, the first on any list. But there is a second to set alongside it: ‘Love others as well as you love yourself.’ These two commands are pegs; everything in God’s Law and the Prophets hangs from them.” (Message bible)

When you study this bible verses very well… you would discover the 3 division of love that God expecting everyone should exhibit on earth.


1. Our first love must be toward Almighty God. Your life must a proof of love for God. The question you need to ask yourself are people through me love God more or make them to be far away. Let your life be an expression of God’s love. Love God with everything.

2. Love yourself.. Many people find it difficult to love themselves most of time they want to hide under the shadow of others but when other people make them feel they are not love, they become very fearful.  You must come out of your shell to love yourself. No matter what give yourself love.

3. Love your neighbour as thyself. Until you love yourself, you can replicate love to your neighbour because what you don’t have you can’t give.

From now let the division of love continue to practise by you.

Remain blessed.
