Pray when pulling into your driveway for your neighbors, that they may know Jesus…
Luke 10:27 (NIV) “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”
We wake up each morning and begin our day. We walk outside and jump in the car and make a speedy drive to work, to taking the kids to school, or off to keep an appointment. At the end of the day we drive home exhausted from the busy day. Turn off the car and drag yourself into the house to begin your “night job”. Feed the family, wash the clothes, help with homework. We fall into our pillow only to begin again tomorrow. Yes Jesus said, next to loving God with all that we are, loving our neighbor is very important, if fact, the greatest commandment. My friends, this is not to shame you. Perhaps today do something different. As you begin your day and you drive by your neighbor’s home, go to the Lord in prayer for the family who lives in that house. Pray that God will bless them. Pray for their salvation. Pray that God will give you a heart to love those who are a part of your community. Who knows, you might make a new friend.
