You always have to just imagine yourselves in the same position then you will have compassion with the neighbour.

Love is the only way on which you take possession of the most exquisite power out of God; therefore you first have to try to awaken this feeling in yourselves; you have to consider your neighbour as your brother who emerged from the same as you yourselves. Read more:

Today I read the following heart-warming message by Bertha Dudde:

 

Fulfilling the commandment of neighbourly love without love.

3. September 1940. B.D. NR. 1595.

The commandment of neighbourly love certainly binds you to acts which serve the neighbour but when you achieve these acts without feeling in yourselves the feeling of love towards the neighbour then you certainly try hard to carry out the divine commandment and this will be taken into account for you as good will but such acts miss the redeeming power. It is more the result of you fearing God but not that you love him Ė that you certainly acknowledge his might but not his love, goodness and mercy. You will fear a mighty lord but a loving, kind and merciful lord you will love again with all intimacy of your heart. And therefore you just acknowledge God as the law giver; you pay attention to his commandment, but you do not hear the voice of love in this word which just would like to let the power flow to you by admonishing you to love. Love is the only way on which you take possession of the most exquisite power out of God; therefore you first have to try to awaken this feeling in yourselves; you have to consider your neighbour as your brother who emerged from the same as you yourselves. You have to make yourselves aware of his sufferings and worries and feel with him and now try to decrease this suffering. You must fulfil the divine commandments because the heart drives you to this and you always have to just imagine yourselves in the same position then you will have compassion with the neighbour and try to improve his lot or help him bear it. And then power out of God can flow to you; the love which you give you receive back thousand fold because as you measure so will it be measured out to you. And to be allowed to receive Godís love makes life easy for yourselves and you will then want to hand out with full hands to him who is in want in body and soul. However you always must kindle love in yourselves - and do everything out of free will, not only to fulfil your duty. Because every work accomplished in love awakens counter love and only then a person has a redeeming effect when love becomes active in him. Amen. B.D. NR. 1595.
