FOR... Neighbors - Day 1
Lord, I ask you to guide my heart and my eyes today to see others as you do.
Read: Mark 12:31 (NIV)
31 “The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[a] There is no commandment greater than these.”
Love your neighbor as yourself. Do I take the time to think about who is my neighbor? Let alone to show them love? Today, as you take time to reflect, think back to a time when you remember when someone treated you with love as a neighbor. I remember years ago, newly married and moving to Wichita. The only person I knew was my husband. He would go off to work every day and I would unpack boxes and try to create order among-st the chaos. One day, the doorbell rang and there were 2 women at the door with a plate of goodies to welcome me to the neighborhood. They didn’t stay long, but they made a huge impact in my life. I felt treasured. It was a good feeling.
Does the story above make you think of one of your own? I encourage you to take the time to think about this. Think about how you felt. Then ask God to reveal a neighbor that could benefit from a knock on the door for a quick conversation showing his love to them.
Remind me Lord of this commandment….Love my neighbor as myself….don’t let me just think about it and not put your love into action. I love you Lord.
