‘Love your neighbour as yourself’
For me, it has nothing to do with externalising love.
It has nothing to do with you doing good to and for others.
It also has little to do with it being the greatest commandment.
BUT. It has a lot to do with internalizing love. This is Jesus challenging me to go be the neighbor. This is Jesus asking: Why do you hate yourself this much? This is Jesus saying: Once you fill your cup you will realise that everyone’s cup is full. This is Jesus showing me that almost everything is how I perceive myself rather than others.
This is a challenge. It is hard. Jesus in all conscious and filled with the Holy Spirit knew that this is going to be a hit! Not only have I been conditioned to believe it otherwise, but because I’ve been thinking this is self-love.
REALLY? LOVE? WTF GOD?
Let’s be the right kind of love.
