That Whole Love Thy Neighbor Thing.....

I have truly been struggling this week with this passage from Matthew. I have noticed the news media spending a great deal of their time talking over and over again about this election. I want to ask the question if it is possible to love our neighbor through the elections? I hope so. As Christians we can't just turn our Christianity off, once we walk out the doors ---- for if we do we have ceased being Christians. So if we go into the voting booths ---- as Christians ---- then what does that look like? Loving our neighbor can be a very hard thing, especially when Jesus adds a whole lot of people to that neighbor thing when he talks about the good samaritan. We have a ton of neighbors. Elections and neighbors ----- what do you all think?
