Be Creative~ Love your Neighbor!

Do you think you are not very creative when it comes to loving your neighbor? Actually, you might be surprised how easy it is!deut 23c love neighbor3a

Deut 23:25 Both Moses and Jesus taught that we are to love God with all your heart, soul and strength and secondly, love your neighbor as yourself. His provision for ancient Israel if one became hungry while walking to the next destination was to enter a grain field and pluck some kernels to eat. Jesus and the disciples did that but the Pharisees were upset with him because of their addition to the Law; no work on the Sabbath.

But, today in our fast food society we drive from place to place. We wait in drive-up lanes,  not walk through a grain field. So how can we apply the principle today? We continue to have open hearts and eyes to the needs around us remembering the words of Jesus: “And whoever gives only a cup of cold water to one of these little ones in the name of a disciple, I tell you the truth, he will never lose his reward.” [Mat 10:42 ] When we are hungry, why not purchase an extra dinner for someone behind you in the drive up lane? Or a cup of coffee?

Be creative today as you go about your busyness.

Stop and look where God might be working and you can be His servant.
