Love Thy Neighbor

We are living in a time where people have become obsessed with “self”. People are more concerned with what others can do for them, then what they can do for others.

Now, I am not saying forget about taking care of you. Lets face it, if you don’t take care of yourself or truly love yourself, how can you care and love someone else?

People now walk with their heads stuck in the cloud not caring about who they hurt or the lives they impact. When we become a country that is solely consumed with self, we become a country full of hate and a country that is not trusting of anyone. 

There is nothing wrong…You will not die if you say hi to someone. You will survive if you help someone in need. You will be okay if you provide someone with a hug. 

Imagine if you spoke or was kind to someone who was seconds away from committing suicide and by you saying, “hi, how is your day going”,changed their minds to end their life. How would that make you feel?

Imagine if you showed someone kindness when they showed you nothing by ugliness, and later down the line God blessed you with that job you were wanting because of your good deed and pure intentions. How would that make you feel?

We have gotten into this mindset of only helping and loving people that help and love us back. Don’t you know God loves us even when we don’t love him? Don’t you know your parents help and care about you even when you are rude and disrespectful? We need to break this mindset of “self” and get back to a “us” or “we” mindset.

When we truly become selfless and have pure intentions behind our actions, our lives will go 1,000 times better. You will feel better about yourself and life as a whole. Love is not about what someone can do for you…it’s about what we can do for one another.

Lets start loving and caring about everyone in this world. You never know who may need it!
