Love your neighbour as you love yourself

Jesus once said, “Love your neighbor as you love yourself.” This means that if you don’t like getting hurt, you shouldn’t hurt others. Love is when you pass on compassion to other people, treating others with mercy and not with cruelty. Just like you need food, your friend will also want a portion of it. Do not waste food by throwing it away because there are people who have nothing to eat. Learn to share whatever you have.

Love is when you pass on compassion to other people, treating others with mercy and not with cruelty. 

Just like you need food, your friend will also want a portion of it. Do not waste food by throwing it away because there are people who have nothing to eat. Learn to share whatever you have.

Some people don’t have enough money to buy for themselves food so if you have some extra food give it to the hungry because onetime you will want something to eat and you will need to ask someone else to give you a helping hand.

In some homes some people have only one meal a day simply because they do not have anywhere else to get more food. So they sleep hungry.

A kind and caring person will always receive blessings from God. He promised in his Word that if help the needy, orphans and widows, the hungry and poor, he will bless you so much that you won’t have enough space to keep all your blessings.

Remember no man is an island, if you think you do not need help today you might need it tomorrow. Do not hurt anyone because causing pain is not good.

Those who help will always be rewarded because they never turned away from someone who asked them for help.
Learn to forgive those that annoy you. Instead of getting angry, remain kind towards them and be their friends. Know that no one is perfect.

When your friend is hurt, consol them, when they are happy, celebrate with them and when they are weak, give them a helping hand.

Loving your neighbor as yourself means caring, sharing, helping, forgiving and celebrating with them.
