What does it mean to show love to your neighbor? It means to treat them in ways you want others to treat you. The problem lies in the fact that people have self worth for themselves. Besides, many people do not know how they are meant to be treated. Some people also lack self respect for themselves. If you do not know how to treat your self right, you will not know how to treat your neighbor right.
The Bible encourages us to treat our neighbors right because that is what God expects from us (Zechariah 8:17).God wants us to love him before we can achieve that, we have to love our neighbors (1 John 4:20). If we cannot love our neighbors with whom we see with both eyes, how can we then claim that we love God.
