When Jesus commands we love our neighbors
He's telling us to love others as we love our self.
Learning to serve people in a positive way
Obviously helps to reject hate and envy itself.
If we don't allow God's love to melt our self-doubt
And remold our heart, mind and soul.
We'll manipulate others in place of loving them
Remaining selfish with wickedness as our goal.
Our compassion for others inspires us to grow
Into a better person for God to be proud of.
Self-examination help's us identify our wrongs,
Objectives, needs, past mistakes and loves.
