Some ancient words could change this sphere
and make our lives worth living here.
 
These words are still familiar to
most people, though they’re hard to do.
 
These simple words that people say
are thought to be an old cliché.
 
Let’s take them down form dusty shelves
and love our neighbors as ourselves.


You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the sons of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself; I am the Lord. (Leviticus 19:18, NASB1995)

And He [Jesus] said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the great and foremost commandment. The second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets.” (Matthew 22:37-40, NASB1995)
