Who is my neighbour? The one who thinks like me? Votes like me? Looks like me? Shops like me? Worships like me?

You don’t have to agree with everyone, but the great temptation when times are tough is to scapegoat and dehumanise other image bearing human beings.

This is why Jesus says ‘loving your neighbour as yourself’ is right up there as the equal greatest command with ‘loving God above all things’. Because they’re really two sides of the same coin, and they can’t be separated.

Be a #healer in a world that is hurting. Be a #peacemaker in a world ravaged by violence. Be a #reconciler in a world that has torn itself apart.
