Love Your Neighbor

Scripture: Galatians 5: [14] The entire law is summed up in a single command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

Observation: I always seem to have all I need and more. I do what I want to do for the most part and take care of me. I seem to love myself okay, but what about others? Do I even care, let alone love? Most of the time my focus is on me. Yesterday Teri and I drove up to see a dear brother in the VA hospital to show him God’s love and it was wonderful to get out of my comfort zone and show someone else the love I give myself.

Application: There is so many people around me that need to have a little love, affection and care. I need to get past the laziness and make a greater effort to express God’s love to everyone around me.

Prayer: Dear Lord only through your power can I love my neighbor as myself. Strengthen me and open my eyes to the opportunities to express love to others.
