FOR... Neighbors - Day 2

Opening Prayer:

Lord, quiet my heart.  Help me to listen to all you have for me today. 

Read: Luke 10:27 (NIV)

27” He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’[a]; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b]”

 Reflect:

Have you ever thought about how much God truly loves YOU? That HE knows you down to the number of hairs on your head? That HE knew you before you were knit into your mother’s womb? When I begin to think about THAT kind of love, it is easier for me to love God back with my heart, soul, strength, mind AND to love my neighbor.  God helps me to see others, not as I see them with my physical sight, but how he sees them-as a child of God. 

Apply:

Ask God today to see people as HE sees them!  Ask him to soften your heart toward others.  Ask him to show you how much HE truly loves you if you don’t already know.  Then, out of the overflow of your heart, share it with others including your neighbor.  

 

Closing Prayer:

Only YOU Lord can change my heart to see others as you see them. Change my heart.  Help me to show your love to my neighbors.
