“Am I loving my neighbor?”

‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” – Mark 12:31

Question for the day:  “How are we doing at loving our neighbors?”

Today we are looking at the second part of the Great Commandment – loving our neighbors.  This is how Jesus said people would recognize us as believers, by the way we treated those around us.

From a church standpoint, we have no closer neighbors than the residents of Glenwood, right next door.  Glenwood is a facility dedicated to the care and education of individuals dealing with autism.

Glenwood is our longest standing ministry partner, in that, our relationship with them goes back almost to the beginnings of Liberty Crossings.  We are blessed by the people of Glenwood, and we try to be a blessing to them as well.

Our ministry at Glenwood is led by Skip and Gina Kitchens.  Our annual activities with the home include the Spring Dance, Christmas Caroling, Pecan Packing, and a work day during the Magic City Miracle.

More volunteers are always needed to make our interactions with these special folks run smoothly.  If you are interested in helping with our outreach and being a wonderful blessing to our neighbors, please contact the Kitchens: ginadk@aol.com

If you would like to learn more about Glenwood and the wonderful work they do, please see their website below:

Also today, we have some great updates and pictures from our Nicaragua team.  Please remember to keep them in your prayers.

Heavenly Father,

You are a great and awesome God.  I thank You for the servants’ hearts that are in the field working for Your harvest.  Forgive me for being “too busy” to lend a helping hand when needed.  Help me, Lord, to love my neighbor better.  Create in me a heart filled with compassion and desire to serve those that are disadvantaged.  

I thank You for those willing to give their time and energy in leading the rest of us in these servant opportunities.  May Your favor and blessings fall on each one.  And may we be led by Your Spirit to truly love our neighbors as ourselves.

In the name of Jesus Christ I pray,

Amen
