Are You A Good Neighbor?

Written by:   |  Found in: Other  |  2 Comments »

How long has it been since you have looked around your everyday stomping grounds to see who God has for you to love?

Neighbors, vendors, service people, peers, kids’ parents, your own family members, …?

 

Here are a few suggestions:

  • Put their trash cans out by the curb and bring them in on trash day
  • Ask them how their day is going and then listen
  • Offer to bring over a meal during a tough time
  • Thank them for their hard work and service to you
  • Love them even when they are hard to get along with
  • Invite them over for a cup of coffee every once in a while
  • Give them a hand on a Saturday project

 

 

Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. Romans 12:10
