Romans 13:8–10 (ESV)
Fulfilling the Law Through Love
8 Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. 9 For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” 10 Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

Part of our Christian identity is love.  We are to love each other with an “agape” love.  That is a love that wants what is best for a person.  It is not a brotherly or erotic love, but a love that wants what’s best for that person.  Paul then list off the 6th Commandment (Adultery), 5th Commandment (Murder), 7th Commandment (Steal), 9th & 10th Commandment (Covet).  It should be noted that Commandments 4th-10th are all geared toward you neighbors.  We are to love God and our neighbors.

I pray: O Lord, I know I love you.  Help me to love my neighbors with an “agape” love.  Forgive me when I fail to love you or my neighbor.  Guide me Lord according to your ways.  Amen.
