6/21/13 Daily Devotion

Romans 13:9 The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not covet,” and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

Society has drastically changed. We were once a society that got involved within each others lives. We were close to our neighbors, not just those right around us, but even those that were blocks away. At one time, we walked around our community and spoke to those around us, but now we stick to a select few people that we call friends. There are many today that do not know their neighbors beyond knowing their names, and this is a sad state of affairs. The Bible calls us to love our neighbors, and in doing so we will show them the presence of God. Why do we hide from our duties? Why do we refrain from walking into the lives of others? We do we not love all of our neighbors as we do ourselves? These questions are good, but the answers can only be personal. Thus we need to discover personally why we are not reaching out any farther than our small, close circle of friends.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me reach out beyond my close circle of friends with Your message of salvation.
