Does it say Welcome home? Or does it say, "Go away?"  

Of course, I am speaking to one's attitude towards others, even though I would think twice about knocking on this door.

Mark 12:30-31 30 And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.' 31 The second is equally important: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' No other commandment is greater than these." (NLT)

Most people I meet are a reflection of the moment they are in. Bad moments = bad attitudes. Good days = great experiences.  

There are two things we need to understand if we will love our neighbor as ourselves. 

#1 - Who they are right now may not be who they are daily. Never assume that who they are in that moment is who they are daily. Could you get to know them better? 

#2 - Be as consistent as you can be every day. If you are having a bad day, say so. Let people know that this isn't who you are usually.  

What you want to do is remember 2 Timothy 1:7

For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. (NLTEmphasis mine

Dear Jesus, help me to consistently show Your love from my heart to everyone I meet today. AMEN.
