Love your neighbor as you love yourself

Meditation (Leviticus 19:17,18)  Do not bear grudges against anyone, but settle your differences with him, so that you will not commit a sin because of him  Do not take revenge on anyone or continue to hate him, but love your neighbor as you love yourself.  I am The Lord.

Personal Reflection and Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, These are really hard instructions for us to follow as we are so tempted at times to want revenge when someone has hurt us deeply!  We need Your help,  Lord,  as left on our own, we do bear grudges and sometimes have trouble in forgiving.  Please bless us with Your love that we may be able to love others as You would have us love them.  In Jesus’ name we pray,  Amen.
