When Jesus says, “love your neighbor,” most of us understand that by “neighbor” he means “everybody.” We should love everyone, everywhere, every time. That’s a pretty tall order. So what often happens, in actuality, is that we end up idealizing this “love everybody” philosophy to the point that we end up loving nobody. We may possess a general love for humanity, but we are often lacking in specific love for the actual people we encounter every day. What if we took Jesus’ command literally? What if we loved our actual neighbors?
