The Ideal the True Object of Love
Matthew 19:19
Honor your father and your mother: and, You shall love your neighbor as yourself.

If my neighbour be an evil-living man, who is not subject to the law of Christ; or if he be a proud, overbearing man, caring only to further his own selfish interests, regardless how he may wound the feelings of others, and cause them to suffer wrong — if, I say, my neighbour be such a man, I cannot, and I ought not, it would be against the royal law, to love these things in him, just as it would be wrong to love them in myself.

(D. Jackson.)
