1/29/17 A Debt Of Love

“Do not go into debt to your neighbor in order to pay your taxes.  Work hard so that you will not be indebted to anyone.  The only debt you should owe to anyone, and this is one that you should pay immediately, is that of love.  Because love is the fulfillment of every commandment in the Law.  God commanded that we should not steal, cheat on our spouses, murder anyone, desire that which is not meant for us to possess, or lie against anyone.  All of these can be fulfilled with love, as Jesus taught us when He commanded us to love God with all our hearts, souls, strength, and minds, and to love our neighbors as ourselves, using love to build each other up instead of tearing each other down.”
