thoughts on home church tonight

What DOES it mean to love your neighbor as yourself?

  • If I am hungry, I get myself something to eat.
  • When I screw up, I forgive myself and give myself a chance to try again.
  • When I’m tired, I feel grumpy and need more understanding and patience from others.
  • When I”m cold, I get a blanket or a coat.
  • When I’m lonely, I hang out with someone.
  • When I’m bored, I find something to do.
  • When I discover an area in my life that stinks, I pray that God helps me to change, and I hope for grace from others.
  • When I get angry (fill in not-so-good attitude) for the hundredth time this month, I know I don’t like that part of myself, and I hope to not do it again… I recognize the desire of my heart for a beautiful spirit, and not only the foulness that comes out in the flesh.

What might it look like if I give that much to my kids?  To my husband?  To the neighbor?   To that family member?  To that member of Jesus’ body that I am a part of?
