Today’s Topic:

Love God and your neighbor


A few love scriptures for today:

Lev.19 [34] … the stranger that dwells with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and you shall love him as thyself; for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am Yehovah your God.



[1] Now these are the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments, which Yehovah your God commanded to teach you, that you might do them in the land whither you go to possess it:
[2] That you might fear Yehovah your God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command you, you, and your son, and your son's son, all the days of your life; and that your days may be prolonged.
[3] Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it; that it may be well with you, and that you may increase mightily, as Yehovah God of your fathers hath promised you, in the land that flows with milk and honey.

[4] Hear, O Israel: Yehovah our God is one Yehovah:
[5] And
you shall love Yehovah your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might.
[6] And these words, which I command you this day, shall be in your heart:
[7] And you shall teach them diligently unto your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk  by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise up.
[8] And you shall bind them for a sign upon your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.
[9] And you shall write them upon the posts of your house, and on your gates.



[9] Know therefore that Yehovah your God, he is God, the faithful God, which keep covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations; [10] And repays them that hate him to their face, to destroy them: he will not be slack to him that hates him, he will repay him to his face.
[11] You shall therefore keep the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which I command you this day, to do them.



[12] And now, Israel, what doth Yehovah your God require of you, but to fear Yehovah your God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve Yehovah your God with all your heart and with all your soul, [13] To keep the commandments of Yehovah, and his statutes, which I command you this day for your good?

[14] Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens is Yehovah's your God, the earth also, with all that therein is.
[15] Only Yehovah had a delight in your fathers to love them, and he chose their seed after them, even you above all people, as it is this day.
[16] Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no more stiff-necked.
[17] For Yehovah your God is God of gods, and Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which regards not persons, nor takes reward:
[18] He doth execute the judgment of the fatherless and widow, and love the stranger, in giving him food and raiment.
[19] Love you therefore the stranger: for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.
[20] You shall fear Yehovah your God; him shall you serve, and to him shall you cleave, and swear by his name.
[21] He is your praise, and he is your God, that hath done for you these great and terrible things, which your eyes have seen.



[1] Therefore you shall love Yehovah your God, and keep his charge, and his statutes, and his judgments, and his commandments, always.

[13] And it shall come to pass, if you shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love Yehovah your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul,

[14] That I will give you the rain of your land in his due season, the first rain and the latter rain, that you may gather in your corn, and your wine, and your oil.
[15] And I will send grass in your fields for your cattle that you may eat and be full.
[16] Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and you turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them;
[17] And then Yehovah's wrath be kindled against you, and he shut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit; and lest you perish quickly from off the good land which Yehovah gives you.
[18] Therefore shall you lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes.
[19] And you shall teach them your children, speaking of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.
[20] And you shall write them upon the door posts of your house, and upon your gates:
[21] That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which Yehovah swore unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth.
[22] For if you shall diligently keep all these commandments which I command you, to do them, to love Yehovah your God, to walk in all his ways, and to cleave unto him;
[23] Then will Yehovah drive out all these nations from before you, and you shall possess greater nations and mightier than yourselves.



[1] If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and gives you a sign or a wonder,
[2] And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spoke unto you, saying, Let us go after other gods, which you have not known, and let us serve them;
[3] You shall not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for Yehovah your God prove you, to know whether you love Yehovah your God with all your heart and with all your soul.

[4] You shall walk after Yehovah your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and you shall serve him, and cleave unto him.



[5]…Yehovah your God would not hearken unto Balaam; but Yehovah your God turned the curse into a blessing unto you, because Yehovah your God loved you.



[6] And Yehovah your God will circumcise your heart, and the heart of your seed, to love Yehovah your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, that you may live.

[15] See, I have set before you this day life and good, and death and evil;

[16] … I command you this day to love Yehovah your God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that you may live and multiply: and Yehovah your God shall bless you in the land whither you go to possess it.

[20] That you may love Yehovah your God, and that you may obey his voice, and that you may cleave unto him: for he is your life, and the length of your days: that you may dwell in the land which Yehovah swore unto your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.



[5]… take diligent heed to do the commandment and the law, which Moses the servant of Yehovah charged you, to love Yehovah your God, and to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, and to cleave unto him, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul.



[11] Take good heed therefore unto yourselves, that you love Yehovah your God.



[4] Let all those that seek you rejoice and be glad in you: and let such as love your salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.



[14] Seek good, and not evil, that you may live: and so Yehovah, the God of hosts, shall be with you, as you have spoken.

[15] Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate: it may be that Yehovah God of hosts will be gracious unto the remnant of Joseph.



[8] He hath showed you, O man, what is good; and what doth Yehovah require of you, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God…



[17] Yehovah your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over you with singing.


A few in the Gospels and Letters

Yeshua said…


[24] No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.



[37] Yeshua said … you shall love Yehovah your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. [38] This is the first and great commandment.

[39] And the second is like unto it, you shall love your neighbor as thyself.

[40] On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.



[42] … woe unto you, Pharisees! For you tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought you to have done, and not to leave the other undone.



[16] For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.



[27] … the Father himself loves you, because you have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God



[8]…God commends his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Messiah died for us.



[9] … as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.


Isa.64 [4]…since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waits for him.




[3]… if any man love God, the same is known of him.



[7] Every man according as he purposed in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God love a cheerful giver.



[1] … you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
[2] Wherein in time past you walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience:
[3] Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
[4] But God, who is rich in mercy,
for his great love wherewith he loved us,
[5] Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Messiah, (by grace you are saved;)
[6] And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Messiah Yeshua:
[7] That in the ages to come he might show the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Messiah Yeshua.



[13] Wherefore I desire that you faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory.
[14] For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah,
[15] Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
[16] That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
[17] That Messiah may dwell in your hearts by faith; that you,
being rooted and grounded in love,
[18] May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
[19] And to know the love of Messiah, which passes knowledge, that you might be filled with all the fullness of God.
[20] Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,
[21] Unto him be glory in the church by Messiah Yeshua throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.



[1] Be you therefore followers of God, as dear children;
… walk in love, as Messiah also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savor.
[3] But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becomes saints;
[4] Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
[5] For this you know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Messiah and of God.
[6] Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
[7] Be not you therefore partakers with them.
[8] For you were sometimes darkness, but now are you light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
[9] (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
[10] Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
[11] And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
[12] For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.



[1] For I would that you knew what great conflict I have for you, and for them at Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh;
[2] That their hearts might be comforted,
being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Messiah;
[3] In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.



[9]as touching brotherly love you need not that I write unto you: for you yourselves are taught of God to love one another.



[16] Now our Lord Yeshua the Messiah himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, [17] Comfort your hearts, and establish you in every good word and work.



[10]the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
11] But you, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.
12] Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto you art also called, and have professed a good profession before many witnesses.



[7]… God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.



[1] This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
[2] For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
[3] Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
[4] Traitors, heady, high minded,
lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
[5] Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.



[1] Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,
[2] To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.
[3] For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.

[4]… after that the kindness and love of God our Savior toward man appeared, [5] Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
[6] Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;
[7] That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.



[9] You have loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even your God, hath anointed you with the oil of gladness above your fellows.



[10] For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labor of love, which you have showed toward his name, in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister.



[5] Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?



[17] Honor all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king.



[1] My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Yeshua the Messiah the righteous:
[2] And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
[3] And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.

[4] He that says, I know him, and keeps not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
[5] But whoso keeps his word,
in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
[6] He that says he abides in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

[7] Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning.
[8] Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shins.
[9] He that says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness even until now.
He that loves his brother abides in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.
[11] But he that hates his brother is in darkness, and walks in darkness, and knows not whither he goes, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.



[1] Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knows us not, because it knew him not.

[10] In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loves not his brother.

[16] Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

[17] … whoso hath this world's good, and sees his brother have need, and shuts up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwells the love of God in him?



[7] Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loves is born of God, and knows God.

[8] He that loves not knows not God; for God is love.

[9] In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

[10] Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.[11] Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.[12] No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwells in us, and his love is perfected in us.

[16] …we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwells in love dwells in God, and God in him.

[20] If a man say, I love God, and hates his brother, he is a liar: for he that loves not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?[21] …this commandment have we from him, That he who loves God love his brother / sister  also.



[1] Whosoever believeth that Yeshua is the Messiah is born of God: and every one that loves him, The Father that begat loves him (Yeshua) also that is begotten of him, the Father.

[2] By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.


In closing for today:


[5] May Yehovah direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Messiah.


[11] Finally,

brothers and sisters, farewell.

Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.

[14] The grace of the Lord Yeshua the Messiah, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all.


Shabbat Shalom
