  1. This was encouraging. On the other hand though there are many neighbors with various disabilities who aren’t even welcomed in our churches and then much less so in our “communities” Loving our neighbor is easy when they are “like us”, have competent social skills and won’t need us to help for too long a time period. Truly loving our neighbor begins with knowing there are many individuals out there that we don’t even know about. May God forgive us and bring us to repentance in not even reaching out to include them in our churches.

  2. Dawn,

    God blessed you with great neighbors. I try to be that kind of person for people I know. Yesterday (2/26) I called two widowed women from the church I used to attend. I listened as they chatted about their families & friends. It was my way of showing them I care.

    I volunteer with Loaves & Fishes Food Bank. We reach a lot of people in the community. Some get food boxes & meals while some just get meals. It makes me feel like I’m loving my neighbor. Occasionally we will pray with them & some have accepted Christ.

    Blessings 🙂
