Romans 13:9-10 – Love Does No Wrong

Romans 13:9-10

For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.


“Love does no wrong.”  What does it mean?   What kind of love is it?

As parents, how can we not go wrong by love?

My mom used to say: “Love your children, you’ll be proud when they grow up.  Discipline them, not because you get irritated or angry.  Discipline them because you love them.  Pamper them, not because of your insecurities.  Pamper them because you love them.”

Loving our children and rearing them take a lot of introspection.  Am I doing this because of my weaknesses or insecurities?  Or am I doing this because I truly care and love them?

These are questions every parents must face.  Too many times we discipline them because of our fears; too many times we indulge them because of our insecurities and past.  Who are we loving then at those times?  Them or us?

Let us love our children and look at them as they really are, not as reflections of ourselves.

When we love them as they truly are, love does no wrong. Love does not go wrong.
