Love your neighbor

gal5.14

“Love your neighbor as yourself” can be tough. Especially when our neighbor does something that brings out the unattractive in our souls. It’s been said the true character of a person comes out when he offers to do for someone who can do nothing for him in return. That is definitely what Jesus did for us–He paid our debt and then gave us the option to receive the gift or not. Even if He knew not one man, ever, would accept the gift, He still would have gone to the cross out of love for mankind. If Jesus gave so much for me, how can I not reach out in kindness and generosity to those I encounter each day?
