Do what is good
Romans 15:2 We should all please our neighbours. Let us do what is good for them. Let us build them up.
God expects us to be loving towards our neighbours. In Luke 10 in the Bible Jesus tells us the tow greatest commands are to love God and love our neighbours.
When it comes to loving others we can often justify how why we feel that way. Or we can convince ourselves they are not really my neighbours. Our neighbours according to God is anyone who is in need. Loving them means acting towards them in ways that meet their needs and not to put hurdles in front of them
As we all have problems and all have needs this tells me that God wants us to love everybody. That doesn’t mean love and approve everything they do. We all need God’s help to love others and we all need God’s help to do what is good for them.
- Have you done anything helpful for someone less fortunate than you today?
Prayer: God show me something good I can do today for someone else.
