I hear “love your neighbour” and quickly pictures of my family, friends, church family, and my next door neighbor come to mind. Well sure, I love them. Even when they annoy me. I’ve mowed buddy’s lawn – and he’s a heathen. I’ll drop everything to make sure I have time to help a friend. I even shovelled a strangers side-walk (that one time). Sure, loving my neighbors comes easy to me.
And as quickly as my sense of accomplishment flooded in, it fades out.
What about the others?
You know… the “Others”…
