Whew! What would happen if we decided to love others, care for others, extend ourselves for others, in the same manner we care for ourselves? Yet, Jesus says this is His greatest commandment. (Mark 12:31) Since He gives it such power and authority, it must be important. Jesus knew that we live and move in community, and in this community we have the ability to make a great or small impact. Consider going out of your way for your neighbor, which could be your spouse, parents, children or friends. Give of yourself and notice the impact.
