Mother Teresa: I also have to love my neighbor

It is not enough for us to say, “I love God.” I also have to love my neighbor. In the scriptures, St. John says that you are a liar if you say you love God and you do not love your neighbor. How can you love God whom you do not see, if you do not love your neighbor whom you see, whom you touch, with whom you live? And he uses a very big word, “You are a liar.” It is one of those words that is frightening to read, and yet it is really true.

It made me reflect and ask myself, who is a neighbor? Is my family a neighbor? Then, how much do I love them? Do I value my relationship with my family?

So, help me GOD.
