TO BRIGHTEN YOUR DAY
A DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT by Pastor Phil

“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” Matthew 22:36-39
 
Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law. Romans 13:8
 
The command to love others is crystal clear. Even non-Christians are familiar with this command. The practice, however, can get murky, even neglected, at least it does for me. But, I keep praying, asking God to continue to transform my heart so that I see, feel about, respond and react to people the way He does—with a love that went to the cross.

Then, I keep working at it. Smiling instead of scowling in an unnecessarily slow check-out line. Holding my tongue when someone is rude. Giving the benefit of the doubt to others. Reminding myself that the person who bugs me is someone Jesus loves so much he was willing to die for them.

Oh, and I wear a mask.

I wear a mask in public places as a very simple, practical way to love my neighbor as myself. I wear a mask without complaint or grumbling and with a smile on my face (although you can’t see the smile behind the mask). I wear a mask in the name of Jesus. It’s one of thousands of small, simple ways to practice the second greatest commandment in the universe—“love your neighbor as yourself.”

How about you? What are some of the small simple things you are doing to love your neighbor as yourself?
