JOHN 13:34 (KJV)
A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
Reading through the gospels, I’m constantly amazed at the simplicity of the teachings of Christ. His words were simple, straightforward, and right to the heart of the issue every time. For example, He summed up The Old Testament Law with the words, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and soul, and strength, and mind. And love your neighbor as you love yourself.” (Luke 10:27) In that same simple manner, He instructed His followers, “If you love me, keep my commandments.” (John 14:15)
Sometimes it is easy to “get back” someone that hurt you, but God tells us to love them. True freedom comes when we can let go and let God.
