2nd Greatest Principle of Life
What is the second greatest principle of life? Jesus said it: “love your neighbor as yourself” (Leviticus 19:18; Matthew 22:39; Mark 12:31; Luke 10:27). This is phrased different ways throughout the Bible. Do to others as you would like them to do to you (Matthew 7:12; Luke 6:31). Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against a fellow Israelite, but love your neighbor as yourself (Leviticus 19:18). Do not take advantage of foreigners who live among you in your land. Treat them like native-born Israelites, and love them as you love yourself (Leviticus 19:33-34). Along with the command to love God, loving neighbor is core of the Christian way of life.
