I don’t know about you, but I don’t really know my neighbors. This seems like a pretty easy request, until I realize that this applies to the way we treat our spouse, kids, family, friend, co-workers…not just our neighbors. What would it look like if we all loved the way we wanted to be loved?
Personally, I want to be loved even when I’m -being a brat and horrible
-lonely and in the pit of despair
-happy and excited
-boring and not engaged
We all want unconditional love. We want it, but it’s so hard to give.
When I’m struggling to love someone, I “try” to remind myself that there have been a lot of people in my life that have loved me no matter what. I don’t do such a good job on extending love sometimes.
This is a reminder I need today. What about you? Do you have a hard time keeping this truth in mind? Let me know in the comments section. I’d love to hear from you.
