The Eleventh Commandment

Most of us have received a decorative card with a very imposing question on it, “Won’t You Be My Valentine?” Valentine cards are often given as reminders to those we love.

Archbishop Usher, (4 January 1581 – 21 March 1656) was once wrecked on the coast of Ireland, and almost destitute of clothing he wandered to the house of a clergyman. The ecclesiastic was quite wary and somewhat cold and incredulous. “How many commandments are there?” he suddenly asked, thinking to detect an impostor.

“I can at once satisfy you that I am not the ignorant impostor you take me for,” replied the archbishop, “there are eleven commandments.” “No,” was the sneering comment, “there are but ten commandments in my Bible. Tell me the eleventh and I will give you all the help you need.” “There it is,” said the archbishop, pointing to this verse: “A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another as I have loved you.’ ” John 13:34 

Sadly, a spirit of hatred is being expressed in all levels of our society today. The best way to combat the spirit of hatred is to love one another as Jesus loved us.
