I think it's easy to love people who are similar to us.
You know, people who view the world as we do. Maybe it's people in your church or your closest friends or just maybe ...your family (or not).
But how do you view people who are not like you? What about people who may have a completely different view of life from you? Now, I'm not saying that you should invite any person you meet on the street into your home but do you look beyond the exterior and ever wonder what's going on in that person's life?
Several days ago, I read Andy Sernovitz's blog post about how to make a viral video. He interviewed Rhett and Link who are two life long friends from North Carolina. They performed at a recent BlogWell conference.
But, back to Rhett and Link's viral videos. These two guys create videos with no money and yet ...they've had over 20 million views on YouTube!
I posted one of their funny videos several days ago about ordering healthy when you go through the fast food drive-in. If you haven't seen it, you can link to it here.
"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself'. All the Law and the prophets hang on these two commandments." Matthew 22: 37-40 (NIV)
