Loving your Neighbor the right way

Cartoon of a boy and a teacher. The boy says, "Every time I try to love my neighbor, I get hit with a restraining order!"

Alas, if you get slapped with a restraining order, you probably aren’t loving your neighbor the right way!

In American society, it’s hard enough to define what love is, let alone treat each other with love. We confuse obsession and strong feelings with love.

The kind of love we need to show our neighbor involves mutual respect, patience and empathy. It’s unconditional love, something we all search for, but find difficult to give.

It’s the kind of love that doesn’t involve legal documents.

Tomorrow, September, 19, 2015, my church is holding a Live Love Day It’s an opportunity to show love to the community of Scottsdale, Arizona with no strings attached. If you’re looking for a way to love your community, you’re welcome to join us!

I drew this cartoon for Kidzmatter Magazine.
