 Jesus affirmed that "you shall love your neighbor as yourself" is the second greatest commandment (Leviticus 19:18).  What does that mean?  Some people interpret this as "love your neighbor as you love yourself", but no where in scripture is this rendered that way.  In fact, some people are so totally self-centered they have a difficult time loving others, while some people loathe themselves, thinking they are of no account.  What is the correct understanding of this command?  If we look further into the context of Leviticus 19, we find the Holy Spirit gives us some great insight into the correct meaning of this law about relationships.
