NEIGHBORS



NEIGHBORS

Neighbors are kind, I love them everyone.
We get along in sweet accord.
But when my soul needs manna from above,
Where could I go but to the lord

So goes the verse in “Where could I go but to the Lord.”

Over the years my neighbors have been good to me. I haven’t been able to please them all, all of the time but any cross-purposes were always minor and quickly resolved.

One way to have a good neighbor is to be a good neighbor yourself.

It is sometimes necessary to leave some people alone and just try to be amicable and let it go at that. Usually their problem is with someone else and you are just getting their overflow anger. If that is the case there isn’t much you can do about that since the issue isn’t with you to start with.

The Bible has a lot to say about neighbors not the least is Romans 12:18 If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men.

This is a good one!
Proverbs 3:29 Do not plan evil against your neighbor, who dwells trustingly beside you.

And these scriptures are also excellent: Galatians 5:14 For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

James 2:8 If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing well.

Mark 12:31 The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”

Shakespeare’s Hamlet has some of the best advice for us;

Neither a borrower nor a lender be,
For loan oft loses both itself and friend,
And borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry.

If you have good neighbors then you are blessed indeed and have much to thank GOD for.

Why don't you bless yourself and sing along.
