You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. — JESUS, Matthew 22:36-39
Love God, love others. That's nice, right? Jesus didn't say anything about not eating bacon, and loving others seems like something we can get behind.
But what if Jesus meant your actual neighbors? You know, the guy with the dog that always barks and the family with the kids who ride their bikes through your yard. Them? Jesus wants me to love them like myself? He can't be serious, can he?
What if he is? This would change everything. This would change how we prioritize of our free time, how we share the gospel and how we understand the importance our community.
