Check on your neighbors
During this time of social distancing umm physical distancing that is, we still can reach out to our neighbors. But who actually is our neighbor and how can we check in on them during this pandemic?
The Bible tells us to love our neighbor.
You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ The second is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”Mark 12:30-31
Our neighbor is those around us such as …
- Actual neighbors (those live next to you)
- Small Group Members (Sunday School Members)
- Church Members
How else can we consider to be our neighbor?
The Simplest answer is … EVERYONE! Everyone we come in contact with is our neighbor. Regardless if we know them or not. I do mean EVERYONE! It don’t matter who they are, where they are from. What they look like. etc.
