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 all of them, 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
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
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
