"Who is my neighbour?"

When Jesus was asked, "Which is the great commandment in the law?" he coupled his answer with another statement. He answered that the first and great commandment is, "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind," and stated, "The second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself."

The fact that Jesus combined these two statements indicates to us, as seekers of Truth, that they are of vital importance. A thorough study of his teachings shows that these two commandments are so interwoven as to be inseparable, and that obedience to one includes obedience to the other. It would seem then that a clear understanding of them is requisite to our happiness and peace.
