THE LAW OF LOVE!!
11Brothers and sisters, do not slander one another. Anyone who speaks against a brother or sister or judges them speaks against the law and judges it. When you judge the law, you are not keeping it, but sitting in judgment on it. 12There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the one who is able to save and destroy. But you, who are you to judge your neighbor?
4: 11-12 Jesus summarized the law as loving God and neighbor (Matthew 22: 37-40), and Paul said that love demonstrated toward a neighbor would fully satisfy God’s law (Romans 13: 6-10). When we fail to love others and instead constantly judge them, we are actually breaking God’s law. Examine your attitudes and actions toward others. Do you build people up or tear them down? When you’re ready to criticize someone, remember God’s law of love and say something positive or encouraging instead; even if you have to speak a difficult truth, you can do so in a constructive, respectful manner. Saying something beneficial to others will cure you of finding fault and increase your ability to obey God’s law of love.

In todays society we are being shown and showing very little LOVE! Everything is about doing what we feel and not concerning how others feel. And so quickly do we pass judgement on others! Jesus told the Pharisees
37 Love your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’
38 This is the first and greatest commandment.
39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
Todays world is anything but about LOVING!! Yet we as CHRISTIANS, ARE COMMANDED TO LOVE!! D we not want to obey Christ?? DO you want to stand before our Lord and explain why we did LOVE others. I am not saying it is always easy, because it definately is NOT. But the more we show that LOVE and mature into being more like CHRIST the easier it becomes. ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and make SURE that you are showing others THE LAW OF LOVE in how you act and treat others
