The comment from the police officer at the end of this post should bring a new perspective. Whether black, white, yellow, or red; whether Christian, Muslim, Buddhist,…; whether male or female; each person we meet is unique. God made them, and He made them for His own glory,
Before we belong to a race, creed, or sex, we belong to Him who made us all. God made each of us so He could love us and we could love Him and each other. Even though it may be difficult to love someone for some reason, it is wrong to hate that which our Lord has made.
This is a continuation of our discussion on Bridges.

Jesus replied, “The most important commandment is this: ‘Listen, O Israel! The Lord our God is the one and only Lord. And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.’ The second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ No other commandment is greater than these.” (Mark 12:29-31)
Think about this: rather than love our neighbor with the same amount of love as we love ourselves, what if Jesus meant for us to love our neighbor from the same Spirit who allows us to love ourselves? The same Spirit who allows us to forgive, offer grace and receive spiritual wisdom?
