I had an interesting conversation the other day with a neighbor. He came over and said something along the lines of:
“I had to come over to your yard 3 times last night to chase off homeless people, just wanted to let you know…so be sure and close your gates and stuff so they can’t get in. We have been working hard to keep the homeless people away, just wanted to let you know.”
I have been thinking about this some. So, here is my question. What happens when “love your neighbor” conflicts with “help the poor”?
I don’t think that this particular situation is so mutually exclusive, but what if there was a situation where you had to choose?
