Love Your Neighbor

Love your neighbor as yourself.
                —Mark 12:31

All around us are people who are fighting private wars, secret hungers, inner poverty.

When Jesus said, “Love your neighbor as yourself,” he wasn’t tossing out a cliché to slap on the refrigerator door; he was telling us to feel the hurts of those who live shoulder-to-shoulder with us—those we work with, worship with, live with.

Jesus asked Peter if he loved him. Peter said he did. Then feed my sheep, take care of my lambs, Jesus said.

If we love him, that’s what we’ll do—feed each other, take care of each other—because that’s what love of him does: “Anything you did for even the least of my people here, you also did for me,” he said.

Wonder what you can do for Jesus?
Be good to those he puts in your path.
