“Do not drag me away with the wicked and with those who work iniquity, who speak peace with their neighbors, while evil is in their hearts.” (Ps 28:3)
The hardest part about loving your neighbor is that you have to actually do it. It isn’t enough to say, “Bless their heart” and then roll your eyes and judge them once they leave the room. It must be genuine care and concern. We haven’t truly learned to love until we speak peace with our neighbors while longing for peace with them in our hearts, too.
“Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be conceited. Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all.” (Rom 12:14-18)
