I remember growing up with Mister Roger’s familiar song playing on our black and white TV. I started to show this on Sunday as we talked about loving our neighbors, but decided against it. Such a simple invitation to relationship – won’t you be my neighbor.
This week, I’ll be posting some resources on being a better neighbor. Most of them come from the book The Art of Neighboring. I found the book (as well as the website) to be powerful and practical in helping me think through how I am growing as a neighbor. The following quote was a helpful reminder…
The command to love our neighbors lies at the core of God’s plan for our lives, and when we follow this mandate, it changes everything. The journey begins when we choose a lifestyle of conversation and community over a lifestyle of busyness and accumulation. It’s about making room for life and choosing to befriend those God has placed around us.
Join me as you seek to follow Jesus as we love our neighbors.
