You can’t ever love your neighbor too much. That’s one debt that is always outstanding. So seek good and pursue it for Jesus’ sake.

8 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. 9 For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 10 Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

     11 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. 12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. 13 Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. 14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.(KJV)

1. O God of mercy, God of might, 
In love and pity infinite, 
Teach us, as ever, in Thy sight, 
To live our life to Thee. 

2. And Thou, who cam’st on earth to die 
That fallen man might live thereby, 
Oh, hear us; for to Thee we cry, 
In hope, O Lord, to Thee. 

3. Teach us the lesson Thou hast taught, 
To feel for those Thy blood hath bought 
That every word and deed and thought 
May work a work for Thee. 

4. All are redeemed, both far and wide, 
Since Thou, O Lord, for all hast died. 
Oh, teach us, whatsoe’er betide, 
To love them all in Thee! 

5. In sickness, sorrow, want, or care, 
Whate’er it be, ’tis ours to share; 
May we, where help is needed, there 
Give help as unto Thee! 

6. And may Thy Holy Spirit move 
All those who live to live in love 
Till Thou shalt greet in heaven above 
All those who live to Thee.
