To Love My Neighbour

To be ignorant of one’s own divine heritage is quite unfortunate. Then, there is the inability to recognise the divine image in every other person.

The inability to see that we are all made in God’s image, and must love one another;

To realise that “to love others is to love yourself”.

To realise that everyone is more than skin and flesh; more than the size of their earthly baggage.

That everyone has a longing for love and hope, and you are counted blessed to offer them these.

But how do I know that my fellow humans have a spark of divinity? How do I know that the human body is capable of hosting divinity? How do I know that we are vessels of honour?

It is when I look at Jesus Christ. I know it all when I look at That Awesome Man of Calvary.

God came in the flesh and lived among us. And He taught us—among many other things—that humans deserve love. Even when they don’t deserve it.

I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.

Psalms 139:14

And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.

Matthew 22:39‭-‬40
