Leviticus 19, 20
Focus Verse: You shall not take vengeance or bear a grudge against the sons of your own people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the Lord. – Leviticus 19:18

If you were poor, wouldn’t you like for someone to leave food for you to take? If you were a sojourner in a strange land, wouldn’t you like to be treated with respect?

Do you want someone to steal from you? Lie to you?

Do you want your neighbor to oppress you or rob you? Would you like your hard-earned wages to be withheld by your boss?

If you were deaf, would you want to be cursed? If you were blind, would you want for others to purposely trip you?

Do you want to be treated unjustly? Do you want others to slander your name? Do you want to be hated?

As you wish to be treated in the above matters and in all matters, so you should treat others. Love others the way you love yourself. Respect others the way you wish to be respected. Your neighbor is not only the person who lives beside you. Your neighbor is everyone you come in contact with everyday.
