If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love... his is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. I do not call you servants ... but I have called you friends ...You did not choose me but I chose you. And I appointed you to go and bear fruit, fruit that will last, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask him in my name. I am giving you these commands so that you may love one another.”
I don't think it's hard. Not at all.
Neither does my friend Susan. We discussed it just today, in fact.
"Love one another."
That's it. That's all.
I mean, of everything we have to do...and should do...and take the time to do...this is the only one that we all really oughtta, you dig?
It's the single greatest thing any one of the humans can do for any other of the humans.
Is it really that difficult or painstaking or challenging or rough to show a kindness or lend a hand or lift a spirit?
I mean, it's not like I'm saying you have to go on the "Ultimate Baking Challenge" and create a 12-tiered wedding cake extravaganza out of eel skins and vanilla wafers in 45 seconds, Capisce?
Love. Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy, y'all. Just, you know, give a little to somebody...any old body...everyday. A'ight?
And I guess, as Forrest Gump often remarked, "That's all I have to say about that."
