Love Your Neighbor!

Last month, Clown talked about how Easter shows that God loves us and sent His Son Jesus Christ to die for our sins. And since God did this for us, we can show the love of God by loving our neighbors.

I thought it would be fun to talk a little more about love for our neighbors. More specifically: How do I show love to my neighbors?

First, let's look at who our neighbors are. Neighbors are ANY people you interact with. Your family and friends are your neighbors. The kids in your class are neighbors. Your teachers are your neighbors. When you're in a store, the people you pass by as you shop are neighbors. The cashiers at the store you're at are your neighbors. When you walk down the street, the people you pass by are your neighbors. That's a lot of neighbors!

So how do you show love to them? The best thing to do is what Jesus said in Matthew Chapter 22 Verse 39 in the Bible, where He quoted from Leviticus Chapter 19 Verse 18 which says to love your neighbor as yourself.

So, when you see someone, how do you show love to them? Just switch your role: If you were them, how would YOU want to be treated? Make sure to treat them that way!

Let's do it!
