Then Tensions will Ease

Let everyone love his neighbor as he loves himself And folks once more turn to God, to each other for help Then tensions will ease, with a reduction in stress Yet when that will be ~ I wouldn't dare guess January 16, 2020 WHEN and THEN Poetry Contest Sponsor: Jenish Somadas

This is the hard part. People have become less selfless and more selfish, I think. Especially when electronic devices take the place of conversation. "as much as himself" is the hard part. I am so GLAD you point this out!

And it used to be like that but things have gone the other way, selfishness and greed are the culprits. Tom

Oh, you nailed THE salient point, Sandra: b/c if you don't love yourself, then clearly you can't love your neighbor either! On the contrary, you'll hold him/her in the same low esteem that you hold yourself! Great insight! Blessings, Gershon
