Good morning, this is Topher, from Washington Church of Christ, bringing you a positive Message Minute.

Jesus said, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matt 22:39)  Deuteronomy expounds on the second half of the ten commandments in chapter 24 and informs us that love goes out toward more than just neighbors at our physical address.  Loving your neighbor as yourself in just this one chapter includes: honoring your wife, being merciful to the family, showing grace to a debtor, giving justice to your countryman, treating fairly the poor, being accountable for only your own mistakes, blessing the visitor to your land, taking care of the orphans, and providing for the widows.  And that's just one chapter of the Bible folks. 

I recently saw how another acted neighborly in caring for patrons in the local Viking Mart Marathon Gas Station in Montgomery.   As I dismounted my bicycle after a 45 minute ride a middle aged woman hustled out the door yelling to all the patrons soon to pump gas, "Wait!  Wait!  Don't pump!  The price is going down in just a few minutes!  Wait!"  So passionate in her desire to help the present patrons, this gas station attendant looked like she warning people of an impending apocalypse in her efforts to save them a dollar.  She truly cared for people and put forth effort to love as a neighbor. 

Today, decide to put forth effort to love someone that has become your neighbor in life.  You'll be glad you did.
