Comparison to the ways of others leads to judgment. Commitment to the ways of God leads to love. Listen to this teaching from our current sermon series, 'Law & Love' on the Book of Amos. In 'Us and Them' Amos confronts God's people with the reality that their lack of concern for the oppressed is ultimately a rejection of God Himself. Jesus' command to love others is rooted in understanding how great God is, how much we need Him, and how great the gift of salvation is.
