your neighbor as yourself, and keeping in mind Philippians
2:3 "Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory, but in lowliness
of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.")-his
brother he is a liar. For he that loves not his brother whom he has seen,
how can he love God whom he has not seen?".For
we are all one, all brothers and sisters in this universal sea of mind,
of energy, of spirit.
3:14,17,18 ".....He that loves not his brother abides in death.....But
whoso has 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? My little children, let us not love in word, neither
in tongue, but in deed and in truth."
Luke 10:29-37 ".....and
who is my neighbor?".(in

neighbors are those needing your help, concern and comfort. However some
are bitter and fight off love. Your brothers and sisters are those believers
who similarly have needs. Love not shown is love unknown -1John
3:11,18,19. Love not expressed has no second best -1Corinthians

another can be expressed to God. Then those feelings will be communicated
through the Spirit to the person intended.
God is love

2:21 "Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world,
but was manifest (brought forth)
in these last times for you. Who by Him do believe in God, that raised
Him up from the dead and gave him glory-(fully
able to think and thus be, as God),
that your faith and hope might be in God.".God

we have the mental health professionals advising us of the benefits of
shown affection by means of hugs, etc. and the feminists screaming sexual
harassment if you touch me! Like, hello! Who stopped payment on your reality
cheque? Truly the devil and his demons have many
doctrines (1Timothy 4:1) they pump

your works of love. Ask, seek and you'll find those who need help. Use
your worldly goods to "lay up treasures for yourself for eternity"
6:19-21 "Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth
and rust doth corrupt and where thieves break through and steal, but lay
up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth
