How Would Life Get Better for the People Around You If Jesus Were Their Neighbor?
When a man asked Jesus to pinpoint what matters most in life, Jesus cut straight to the heart of it. He said the most important thing in life is to love God with the entirety of who you are and to love your neighbor as much as you love yourself (Matt. 22:37–39). In short, he said that love matters most.
Even though Jesus’ words are crystal clear, most followers of Jesus are quick to admit that they struggle to love God—and those around them—practically speaking.
