Wonderful Day in the Neighborhood

Mr. Rogers

“Mr. Rogers did not adequately prepare me for the people in my neighborhood!”—Unknown

Jesus says that we should love our neighbors. He didn’t ever say it would be easy. Neighbors can be loud, obnoxious, rude, cantankerous and difficult to love in many various ways. That does not relieve us of our obligation to show them the love of Jesus.

It is easy to love people who are loveable. Loving the unlovely is a different matter. Only with the help of Jesus can we hope to succeed in this type of radical love. And when we succeed, our neighborhood becomes a much better place in which to live.

“If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.”—Romans 12:18.

  1. Ok, Tom, you’re in cahoots with God today, of course, your in cahoots with God every day. 😀 Ellen and I did a Bible study today on 1 John. We used your study guide from when your cover it on Wednesday night (I kept some of them). We talked about faith, obedience, and loving our brother (forgiveness). Among other things. I even mention your verse along with others verse by it but I couldn’t remember where it was….. I believe the Holy Spirit is talking to us today.
