James Bible Study Day 22

James bible study at melindatodd

Welcome to day 22 of our James Bible Study! Let’s unpack verses 9-10.

Let’s back up just a hair to verse 8. What is the royal law? It’s to love your neighbor as yourself. Look up these verses and read what the Lord has to say about it.

Romans 13:8-10

Galatians 5:13-14

The perfect law of freedom comes from loving your neighbor. It doesn’t say love yourself first and then love your neighbor. No. God says to serve others.

I wonder if this isn’t the missing piece in the world today. After all, we’ve forgotten this royal law and instead are told all the time to love yourself before you can love others. But what if we find the less indulging love for ourselves by serving and loving others? What if that’s the missing key? Just a thought.

Maybe we won’t indulge our own flesh if we’re busy serving another.

What do you think? Share in the comments.

Continue your memory work for verses 1-5.

Blessings,
