LOVE EVERYONE ELSE

What does it mean to "Love Everyone Else?" When we consider our Bridge Core Values, we simply take the two greatest commands and break them down. The first command is the same: to Love God with every part of our lives. However, when it comes to loving others, as we love ourselves, we break down who the others refers to. The Bible is very clear about the way you and I are to love other believers: those within our own church (each other), and those in the larger church (around the world). However, Jesus has a great deal to say about loving those outside of the church, the "everyone else." He modeled this love, and on numerous occasions was accused of being a "friend of sinners."  Are we guilty of the same title? Do we have friends who we love and spend time with who do not share the same beliefs?
