This verse gives us an insight into the meaning of love. Granted it comes from the negative but even that will help us understand love a little better. When asked about the greatest commandment Jesus said,
(Mat 22:39 KJV) And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.Both Jesus and Solomon are talking about neighbors. One says to love, the other says to not “despise” (936). What that tells us is we really need to watch the negative attitudes.
So? Got a neighbor you can’t stand? You don’t need to invite him over for Thanksgiving dinner but you do need to examine your attitude. Maybe one way to do that is to invite him over for Thanksgiving dinner.
