Memory Verse

“Love your neighbor as yourself”

Audio Icon   Mark 12:31



In this episode, Liz and Lucille learn how to love their neighbors, even when the neighbors are acting in a way that’s hard to love.

One day, Jesus was teaching a group of people about God’s law that says, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart . . . and love your neighbor as yourself” (Luke 10:27). One man asked him, “And who is my neighbor?” Jesus told the parable of the good Samaritan, about a man who helped a stranger who had been beaten by robbers. Jesus explained that a neighbor is anyone you have a chance to show love to. And then he said, “Go and do likewise.” This isn’t something Jesus just tells us to do. It’s what he did for us, too. Romans 5:10 tells us that Jesus Christ died on the cross for us “while we were God’s enemies”! That’s the kind of love he wants us to show others.

Want to dig deeper and learn more about loving your neighbors and your enemies? Check out Proverbs 25:21-22, Matthew 5:44, and Luke 6:28.


As Liz and his friends did in this episode, help out with a food or clothing drive. Find a local charity or business that is collecting food or used clothes for a shelter or orphanage. Ask how you can help—by going door-to-door with your family or a group from your church, helping organize the donations, serving at a meal. All the people you help are your neighbors, and you will be showing the love of Jesus Christ to them.
