Love Thy Neighbour
Image by Marie Vonow

The other day when I was in Adelaide I saw the words,'That "Love Thy Neighbour" thing...I meant that. - God' on a banner outside a church. I took a photo because it struck me as profound.

Many people, whether they are of the Christian faith or not, have heard the second commandment, 'Thou shalt love they neighbour as thyself.' Whether you believe in God or not, you can probably see that if everyone 'loved' their 'neighbour' in the same way as they love themselves, the world would be a nicer place.

I interpret 'neighbour' to mean all other people, not just the people living in the houses on either side of me. I also interpret 'love' not as meaning a romantic feeling but having respect and treating others as I would like to be treated.

How do you like to be treated?

I appreciate it when -
Someone shows respect for me
Someone is honest, loyal and trustworthy
Someone listens without judging me
Someone offers helpful advice if I ask for it
Someone helps me out when I need support and assistance
Someone shares with me
Someone cares about my feelings and does not intentionally hurt them
Someone says 'Hello', smiles or shows friendship and goodwill in any way

One can show 'love' for others in small ways as well as big. Even small gestures of goodwill can make a big difference to other people so we shouldn't think these things don't matter. By doing anything at all to improve the lives of people we come across, we are doing our bit to make the world a nicer place.
