Another delightful story from Max Lucado. I have been a fan of his books and can now share his stories with my children.
Hermie is a lovable character who we thoroughly enjoy. But this story is about his friend, Antonio, who is finding it hard to love his neighbor. No matter how hard he tries, he does not like his new neighbor. God reminds him, and us, that He wants to love our neighbor even when it is hard. This is a good lesson for not just the kids but for the adults, too.
What I liked about the story was the reminder that we are not just to "put up with" our neighbors but to truly love them. It is only through God's love for us that we can love others.
A great story with a great message. Thanks Hermie!
