A Fellow Blogger on Loving Your Neighbor

From time to time I will post an excerpt from a fellow blogger’s writing and post a link.  That’s what I’m doing today.  I found an interesting post entitled “Not in My Sandbox.”  Check out this excerpt.

So here’s a point of order: Love your neighbor does not mean be a doormat. The full commandment is love God, love your neighbor, and love yourself. Life is about balancing that trifecta. We don’t love our neighbor by constantly subjecting ourselves to our neighbor’s hurtful behavior towards us. We are simply engaged in the emotional equivalent of constantly poking ourselves in the eye when we do that.
