THOUGHT OF THE DAY
Matthew 22:35-40 AMP
 One of them, a lawyer [an expert in Mosaic Law], asked Jesus a question, to test Him:  “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”  And Jesus replied 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 first and greatest commandment.  The second is like it, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF [that is, unselfishly seek the best or higher good for others].’  The whole Law and the [writings of the] Prophets depend on these two commandments.”
James 2:8-13 AMP
 If, however, you are [really] fulfilling the royal law according to the Scripture, “YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF [that is, if you have an unselfish concern for others and do things for their benefit]” you are doing well.  But if you show partiality [prejudice, favoritism], you are committing sin and are convicted by the Law as offenders.  For whoever keeps the whole Law but stumbles in one point, he has become guilty of [breaking] all of it.  For He who said, “DO NOT COMMIT ADULTERY,” also said, “DO NOT MURDER.” Now if you do not commit adultery, but you murder, you have become guilty of transgressing the [entire] Law.  Speak and act [consistently] as people who are going to be judged by the law of liberty [that moral law that frees obedient Christians from the bondage of sin].  For judgment will be merciless to one who has shown no mercy; but [to the one who has shown mercy] mercy triumphs [victoriously] over judgment.
