Honorable Debt
Romans 13:8 (NLT) Owe nothing to anyone – except for your obligation to love one another. If you
love your neighbor, you will fulfill the requirements of God’s law.

God’s law binds everyone to the duty to love one another. Whether or not others reciprocate love to us is not an exception to the expectation God has of us. Love is so powerful and so right…so eternal that there is no need for exceptions to its rule. Love covers all – the good and the bad, the right and the wrong, the just and the unjust; the kind and the hateful; the saved and the unsaved. When Jesus died on that cross, His love covered His followers…and His love covered the people who killed Him. That’s more than enough to confirm that the obligation we have to love one another – everybody – is an honored and able (honorable) debt we are both privileged and obligated to pay forward forevermore.
