What comes to mind when you think about COVID-19? My assumption is your mind is flooded with more negative thoughts than positive thoughts, right? COVID-19 truly has disrupted each one of our lives in different and distinct ways and has changed how we do life with our family, friends and neighbors.
Here is another question, What comes to mind when you think about your neighbors? Maybe you don’t know them very well or, if you’re honest, maybe you think the lady across the street is a bit weird. For many of us, it can be tempting to keep our distance and mind our own business in our neighborhood. But is that really how God wants us to live?
Even though we are all in the middle of a global pandemic, the calling of God has not changed during COVID-19. As followers of Jesus, we are still called to love both God and our neighbors. It’s easier said than done, but if we push past the fear, time barriers, and pride that can keep us from engaging with others, we can build deep connections with the people in our neighborhood and, most importantly, please God during and post-COVID-19.
Over the next 5 weeks, the Missional Living Ministry is going to lead you through scripture and learn some practical ways to be a good neighbor during COVID-19. What would our communities look like if we took Jesus’s command to love our neighbors as ourselves seriously? Join us to find out!
