"Love Thy Neighbor as Thyself"
“Love thy neighbor as thyself”
We think we do this;
we divide a pie evenly,
we take turns talking,
we don't always go first,
we don't hit if we'd rather not be hit back-
But do we really?
We defend ourselves so loyally
-but when another is being accused we think ‘it’s good for him’
We ourselves are so imperfect
-but we expect perfection from others
We get mad when someone is grouchy
-but we never stop to think of why they're grouchy (which we expect everyone to
do for us)
We spend all our money on ourselves
-and rarely a penny falls to our neighbor
We talk for hours about our neighbors
-but when do we tell about everything we ever did wrong?
We try to cry for our sins
-but when do we weep for another’s?
