I’m going to slip into the religion zone for just a minute. But for you non-believers, just wait. It’s for you too.
When Jesus was asked about the most important commandments, the first was “Love your God with all your heart.”
When asked about the second he said, “Love thy neighbor as thyself. There are no greater commandments than those.” He actually said that!
Sooo, let’s go full circle and jump forward a couple thousand years to a scientific study of more than 5000 people and their health and general well-being. It seems like there’s a pretty solid connection between heart health and the amount of strife with neighbors.
I’ll leave the finer points of the study up to you in the link below. In the meantime, I’m using both hands and both sets of toes to count up the number of cancer and heart disease patients in my own HOA neighborhood!
