When I was younger, I remember watching Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. Even though his show was no longer on televisions when my daughter was born, we found a couple of DVDs to watch. Mr. Rogers was always a calming voice and an advocate for getting to know and stand up for everyone in the neighborhood. As we follow God, we need to make sure we are good neighbors, too!
We are called by God to be good neighbors. We need to follow God and learn His truth, what is right. We also need to be willing to seek justice. When we are filled with God's love, we need to hear His call. We need to then speak up for our neighbors, defending the oppressed and supporting those in need. We can be a voice that pleads for those without a voice. We can fill the roles for which God calls us. We can be the good neighbors that those around us and throughout the world need!
Be a good neighbor by seeking justice, doing what is right, and sharing God's love!
Thank You for calling me and showing me Your way. Help me to be a good neighbor that is focused on justice and righteousness that come from You. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
