Love a Universal Disposition
Matthew 5:43
You have heard that it has been said, You shall love your neighbor, and hate your enemy.

A man does not love according to Scripture, simply because he can count well, and say, "I love that person, that one." That is not it. What kind of a candle would that be which, being set on your table, only shone on particular things — on this book, on that vase, on that mirror, on that picture, and nowhere else. A candle is put upon a candlestick, that it may give light to all in the house. Love must leave nothing out.
