More often than not, our angry feelings are based tree on a misinterpretation of what someone said or did. A grudge clouds our judgment and may lead us to an act of revenge that can never be undone. The Old Testament law specified equal revenge for equal wrong: "an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth" (. Exodus 21:23-25, leviticus 24:19-20.) But this rule was too harsh for the new age of the kingdom of God. In His Sermon on the mount, jesus said the right thing to do is to take no revenge at all. "you have heard that it was said, 'an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.' "But I say to you, do not resist him who is evil; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also. The need to forgive is not some ideal that we cannot hope to attain. Forgiveness is necessary to free us from the dark cloud of anger and resentment that can literally destroy our own lives.
Like the unselfish Samaritan man of Jesus' parable, we are called to extend our love and concern to all persons everywhere, as our neighbors. We should not exclude anyone or any group because of social status, a supposed character fault, religious difference, racial difference, ethnic difference, citizenship difference, etc. Related verses: Matthew 22:34-39, luke 6:27-38, forgive others, jesus calls us to remember that we are all God's children. Just as he loves all His people and is willing to forgive their sins, we must be willing to forgive others who have done wrong to us: For if you forgive others when they sin against you, your heavenly father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. Anger can consume us with hatred and block out the love of God. Whether between parent and child, spouses, friends, or nations, expressions of anger divide us and drive us toward open hostility.

Jesus told His famous parable of the good Samaritan to make it clear that "love your neighbor" means to love all persons, everywhere - not just our friends, allies, countrymen, etc.: One day an expert on Moses' laws came to test Jesus' orthodoxy by asking. And you must love your neighbor just as much as you love yourself." "Right!" Jesus told him. "Do this and you shall live!" The man wanted to justify (his lack of love for some kinds of people so he asked, "Which neighbors?" Jesus replied with an illustration: "a jew going on a trip from Jerusalem to jericho was attacked by bandits. They stripped him of his clothes and money, and beat him up and left him lying half dead beside the road. "By chance a jewish priest came along; and when he saw the man lying there, he crossed to the other side of the road and passed him. A jewish Temple-assistant walked over and looked at him lying there, but then went.
"But a despised Samaritan came along, and when he saw him, he felt deep pity. Kneeling beside him the samaritan soothed his wounds with medicine and bandaged them. Then he put the man on his donkey and walked along beside him till they came to an inn, where he nursed him through the night. The next day he handed the innkeeper two twenty-dollar bills and told him to take care of the man. 'If his bill runs higher than that he said, 'i'll pay the difference the next time i am here.' "Now which of these three would you say was a neighbor to the bandits' victim?" The man replied, "The one who showed him some pity." Then. The jews and Samaritans had been enemies for hundreds of years. The jews of Jesus' society considered the samaritans to be ceremonially unclean, socially outcast, religious heretics (Mays,. Yet, the samaritan took pity on the poor man who had been robbed and beaten.

The lord our God is one lord; and you shall love the lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.' "The second is this, 'you shall love your neighbor as yourself.'. In Jesus' teachings, our relationship with our fellow men, women and children is inseparable from our relationship with God. Love of God and love of our neighbors are two aspects of the same calling: "A new command I give you: love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
