We know that we love the children of God,

When we love God and keep His commandments,

For this is the love of God,

That we keep His commandments.-------------------------------------------------------I John 5:2,3

 

Therefore the law is holy, and the commandments holy and just and good.----- Romans 7:12

But we know that the law is good if one uses it lawfully. -----------------------I Timothy 1:8,9

He who despises his neighbor sins,

But he who has mercy on the poor, happy is he.------------------------------------Proverbs 14:21

 

For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this.

“You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”-----------------------------------------Galatians 5:14

Do not be overly righteous, nor be overly wise.

Why should you destroy yourself?-------------------------------------------------Ecclesiastes 7:16

 

Love does no harm to a neighbor, therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.- Romans 13:10

He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.----------------------------I John 4;8

The backslider in heart will be filled with his own ways,

but a good man will be satisfied from above.---------------------------------------Proverbs 14:14

 

Those who forsake the law praise the wicked,

but such as keep the law contend with them.-----------------------------------------Proverbs 28:4

As it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”

Yet the law is not of faith but “the man who does them shall live by them.”-Galatians 3;11,12
