What’s this love your neighbor thing all about?

loveyourneighborrevolution

I was watching the news one morning and it was seriously depressing.  In less than 5 minutes there were about 7 stories of murder, stabbings, rages, etc….

I started me to thinking.  Why? Why is there so much hatred towards our fellow humans: The people we share our air with and come into contact with everyday?

As a follower of Christ, I am commanded to love my neighbor.  It’s such a simple command but it seems so difficult to do.  Why is it so hard?  I think the main reason is because God created us all different and we haven’t learned how to get along with each other.  Heaven forbid that someone think differently than me or so we think.

First, and most importantly, I love Jesus Christ and I trust in Him as my Lord and Savior. I was raised in a Christian home by a godly dad and mom (who planned and had me in July before turning 42 in August), and 5 older siblings. My father passed away when I was 7 and my mother (who went to be with the Lord in 2005 at 81) never remarried. As a child, I was bullied at school, so I did not have many friends. I didn't want to tell my mom this because I knew she had enough worry being a widow at 50. I know what it is like to be lonely. As an adult, God showed me the value of His Friendship and has blessed me, too, with rich relationships with dear friends who also love the Lord. My husband and I (married 31 years as of 2020), have three wonderful, adult children and son-in-law as well as three darling grandchildren. Along with many others, my husband lost his job, but we refuse to be fearful or angry. The Lord has provided for us and we are so thankful for the opportunity to express gratitude through personal contact and occasional memories I share through writing. I believe the Lord has given me a venue to engage with others and a means to share His Word. Thank you for checking out my page. I hope you enjoy what you read. If there is anything positive or insightful in the devotionals (NOT CALLING MY WRITING "INSPIRED" by any means!), I give all credit and glory to Jesus Christ! On the other side of that, when something makes no sense, that's all me
