Honor your father and your mother: and, You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
I. WHO IS OUR NEIGHBOUR?
II. THE DUTY OF LOVING OUR NEIGHBOUR.
1. This commandment evidently means — that we should not injure our neighbour in his person, property, or character; that we should seek to do him good; that in case of debt, difference, or debate, we should do what is right, regarding his interest as much as our own, that in order to benefit him we should practise self-denial, or do as we would wish him to do to us (Matthew 7:12).
2. It does not mean — that the love of ourselves, according to what we are, or according to truth, is improper; that I am to neglect my own business to take care of my neighbour's (1 Timothy 5:8; Titus 2:5).
(A. Barnes, D. D.)
