In our culture today, there is not much of a consensus of what duty means especially when it comes to our duty to our neighbors. The Bible, however, tells us pretty clearly what our duties are, especially for our neighbors. So my question today is this: what is our duty to our neighbor?
Our passage is a very short one- it comes from Exodus 20:13: “You shall not murder”. So today we are going to unpack this verse in light of the whole Bible and all of its nuances. We’re going to see that this commandment applies to us much more than we think.
But simply put, our passage today tells us that our most vital duty to our neighbor is to safeguard both their physical and spiritual life.
