It's not hard to love your neighbor as yourself. Acts of kindness and generosity generally do the trick.
We have a great set of neighbors. They're the people I enjoy most in this town of 5M. We watch each other's kids, pull trash cans off the curb, pull down hurricane shutters, and generally look after one another.
Loving neighbor isn't really all that hard. Some are more unlovable than others, but specific acts of kindness and generosity goes a long way in expressing God's love in Jesus through you to them.
