The Lord give me a job that
didn't require much labor,
all I had to do was help my neighbor.
I overlooked all the sick, weak, and poor,
I over looked the needy and didn't help them endure
Suddenly, I felt great a great presence appear,
He spoke these words directly in my ear…
“Behold, to love the Lord thy God
is My Greatest Command,
and to love thy neighbor is
the second greatest for man.
The greatest commandment is
helping the sick and poor, if you love Me
then you will help the needy endure.
Why do My people find My words so terrible?
I have already explained this a parable:
There was a man robbed, beaten,
and left to die on the street,
he laid there thirsty, dying,
and without food to eat.
A self-righteous preacher turned
his head as he passed by,
but a stranger helped because
he did not want to see the poor man died.
He fed, clothed, and paid for him to stay in an Inn,
he rescued him and treated him like a friend.
Then it came to pass he got well
and praised God the very next day,
just because the humble servant
showed compassion as he was going on his way.
Indeed! thou shall love thy neighbor as thyself,
because this shall separate who receives life or death!”
