About Loving Our Neighbor

[Written Especially for Children]

JESUS once said to his friends: "Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, . . . do good to them that hate you."

Now Jesus was a very practical, as well as loving teacher of Christianity. He never gave any rules which could not be lived up to, or which, if followed, would make one unhappy. Whatever he taught was sure to bring with it health, happiness, and success—if followed! We have so much proof of this that no one dreams of arguing about it. So if Jesus told his friends to love their enemies, he must have known that by doing this they would wake up to the beautiful fact that they had no enemies after all.
