2016 Frieda P. Smith
Has anyone besides me ever met a person who manages to make the easiest things difficult? Consider this scenario…
Minister: Pastor, I am headed to the store. Need anything?
Me: Yes, Minister. Will you please bring me a Pepsi?
Minister: Sure Pastor. Do you want it in a can, a bottle, or a cup with ice?
Me: It doesn’t matter.
Minister: Okay. Do you want a 16 ounce or a 32 ounce bottle?
Me: A 16 ounce will be fine. Thanks.
Minister: Okay Pastor. One last thing…diet or regular?
Minister: Got it. I will be right back.
Me: Yes, Minister…
Minister: Sorry to bother you, Pastor, but there is a sale on a 12 pack of Pepsi.
Would you like me to buy that instead? It’s a better deal.
Minister: Do you need me to buy a bag of ice? These cans are warm.
I used the above scenario as an example, because there are Christians who have no problem preaching, teaching, singing, running, and dancing but seem to complicate a very clear and easy directive from Jesus: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
There is no hidden code here. No new “revelation.”
Love your neighbor. It’s not that difficult.
