A law of kindness that governs us all

For a law to be kind, wouldn't you agree that it should express humaneness, fairness, justice, equality, and mercy? Never harmful, it would exclude lust, greed, and self-centered interests. Racial, national, and ethnic discrimination would be impossible with a law that leaves no one out.

Does such a law exist? Indeed it does. The First Commandment points out the oneness of God when it declares, "Thou shalt have no other gods before me" (Ex. 20:3). When asked which is the greatest law, Christ Jesus summarized the central message of the Ten Commandments by saying: "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hand all the law and the prophets" (Matt. 22:37–40). Is not this the ultimate law of kindness?
