A bright blue lesson in love

Loving Our Neighbor is widely recognized as the right thing to do. But consistently feeling loving toward our neighbor can sometimes be challenging. A Christian who desires to love to the degree that Christ Jesus expected us to, would want to think carefully about his example. Unselfishness, compassion, and patience ran through all his work.
