Last night the pounding continued for me. It was bad enough that I wrote about my experience with homeless dude and my general lack of concern for my neighbor. But then last night, the men’s group I have been hanging out with decides that the topic should be about love, and kindness and how we treat the poor. (geesh, is someone trying to tell me something!!)
But seriously, it is important, even this week Barry O. said that is why he was attracted to Christ:
“It was because the precepts of Jesus Christ spoke to me in terms of the kind of life that I would want to lead. Being my brother’s and sister’s keeper. Treating others as they would treat me.” – Barack Obama
This whole idea of loving your neighbor is extremely important One that is probably worth another post. This morning I stumbled upon this quote
Do not think that love in order to be genuine has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired. Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies. – Mother Teresa
She’s correct, it doesn’t have to be huge, or big, but it needs to be consistent and faithful – which ironically would be extraordinary!!!
Let’s do it up!
9-10So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit. Right now, therefore, every time we get the chance, let us work for the benefit of all, starting with the people closest to us in the community of faith. (Galatians 6:9, The Message)
