Can we love our neighbors as we love ourselves? Here's how...


Love your neighbor as yourself?

Lord, can I really do this in the world we live in today?

There is so much jealously and hate that gets in the way.

Love your neighbor as yourself?

Dear God, it seems like such a simple thing to do.

Why then is it so hard for me to simply obey you?

Love your neighbor as yourself?

OK Lord, I will try to do this tomorrow or some other day.

You know, I hardly see my neighbors; perhaps they moved away!

Love your neighbor as yourself?

OK Lord, I will give it a try today and I’ll see if I am right or wrong.

Praise God! They were very nice and I am so happy that we got along.

Love your neighbor as yourself?

I got more than one neighbor and they need all some help; this I can tell.

I’ll do my part here Lord and perhaps I will meet others that need you as well.

Praise The Lord Jesus Christ!

Amen

   

Reference: Matthew 19:19

Love your neighbor as yourself.

I am learning that the Lord gives us each individual trials of testing our hearts, and our faith. He looks at our hearts even in a unsavory situations & circumstances to see how & who we really are. Loving people who are mean for example (full of that jealousy & hate exc.) seemed like such a bizzare thing to me before being reborn, as I didn't understand the gravity of it all. Mercy is such a profound gift of love, and forgiveness. Mean people are miserable inside cause they need the Lord. So I try to see them as infants having a temper tantrum. (love thy neighbor) And let me tell you I am one with a quick wit for sarcasm to mean people because I am also a very outspoken personality. It can be challenging too in "wanting" to love people who are brass & rash & seemingly ignorant-but I feel the awesomeness of a mercy grow inside of me each time I encounter someone having a bad day & I handle the test through the Eyes Of Christ. Then I receive a blessing for it! The Lord is so Amazing.

I like how you always show your references from the Bible John

It is easy to hide in your home and not seek out your neighbors or the people we sit next to everyday at work. I find when we reach out and share something, or take the time to give, we see the face of Christ in their smile. Loving your neighbor teaches us, it is in the giving of yourself, that you are rewarded the gift of love. You get more out of it than that neighbor when you act on this action.

Thank you John for sharing this and may God bless you and your neighbors!

In Christ

much needed message that shows what love really is. Not a feeling, primarily, but an act of a will submitted to God.
Great poem John!

I tried this years ago and found that it got easier each time.... even with the unlovable. Anyone can do this if they just keep at it! Wonderful poem; you wrote it well.
