Short Reflection by George Calleja
My neighbour… my neighbour is a divorced person, my neighbour is a drug addict, my neighbour is unemployed, my neighbour is disabled, my neighbour is lonely, my neighbour is Jesus.
My neighbour: am I loving my neighbour, am I reaching to the needs of my neighbour? Do we really love Jesus, and express this love by loving our neighbours? My neighbour is a gift to me, I am a gift to my neighbour, through His love we are a gift to each other.
Remember that what we do to others we are doing to Jesus. Jesus is found in my neighbour. Loving my neighbour is a real opportunity to love Jesus.
Be encouraged. Every present moment of your life is an opportunity to love. Every person you meet during the day is your neighbour… remember that person is Jesus! Jesus is waiting for you. Jesus loves you in a personal way.
In return for Jesus’s love towards you, all you have to do is to love your neighbour.
My neighbour is Jesus!
