Loving OneAnother consists of deeds.
We will examine the following passage the next few days.
Seek the Lord.
He will speak.
8 Owe nothing to anyone except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law.
9 For this, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and if there is any other commandment, it is summed up in this saying, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
10 Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.

But, for the most part, debt is not use that way.
Owe nothing to anyone.
Except the debt of love.
