Kirby: Tolerate thy neighbor as thyself

< Previous Page

I decided my wife had the right idea. If you can’t love your neighbors right up front, it’s always best to give them the benefit of the doubt before you start ignoring or even hating them. The best way to figure that out is to be of service to them.

I could mow their lawn. Wash their car. Loan them tools. Invite them to sit by me in church. I could even help them fix their roof if the occasion arises.

On second thought, I’ll just buy them helmets.
