Love Thy Neighbor, You Sure?

Love Images

Love thy neighbor as you love yourself… before we start quoting and preaching, let us do an exercise focused only on our real defined neighbors, the community of people around where we live.

Do you love your neighbors?
Do you know you neighbors’ names?
Do you know your neighbors’ history?
Do you love your neighbors when they do not look like you (physically and metaphorically)?
Do you love your neighbor in their joys and worries?
Do you help your neighbor when they need a hand or an ear?
Do you love your neighbor when they are fun and when they are stressful?
Do you share good things with your neighbors?
Do you know how your neighbor socializes?
Do you love your neighbors’ family?
Do you love your neighbor when their politics do not favor your own?
Do you love your neighbor when they seem rotten or broken?
Do you love your neighbor when they are bright and shiny?
Do you love your neighbor when they are deep and when they are shallow?
Do you love your neighbor when they have nothing to give you?
Do you love them in your head or do you love them in your heart or do you love them with your actions or do you love them none at all?

Rotten, shiny, long, round…they’re all tomaters

Love thy neighbor…..right?

I am a Hopemade Woman because I hope for the promise of life through Jesus. This hope is what drives me! I am a creative romantic with big dreams of successfully merging the homemaker life, the blogger life and a spicy dash of the entrepreneurial life. What can I say? I like to juggle and that is okay--I am learning at all times, as you'll soon find out. I blog to share this hope with other women and mommas.

    1. Thanks for sharing! I was convicted about a particular neighbor near me that I haven’t reached out to in the same way I have with the others. As the saying goes, our actions speak loud!
