The Pastor’s Keystrokes

Psalm 9:1, I will thank the Lord with all my heart; I will declare all your wondrous works. (CSB)

The warm weather is here which means more time outdoors. Over the winter, we had a new neighbor move in a couple of houses down from me. I saw him outside this last weekend, so I took the opportunity to meet him. Pray for me as I shine the light of Christ on my new, Vietnam Purple Heart recipient, neighbor.

I share that brief story as a challenge for all of us to take the opportunity to meet our neighbors. Look for those natural encounters to listen to their story and pray for the chance to tell them what God has been doing in your life – I will declare all your wondrous works.

Before you go charging out to look for a neighbor to get to know, spend time in God’s Word. The more time one spends in God’s Word, the better equipped one is to be a tool God can and will use to make Himself known to our world. Proverbs 4 is a Father’s words to his son. Verse 20, My son, pay attention to my words; listen closely to my sayings. Read the whole Proverb, and let those words speak to you as from your heavenly Father. They will help us be the child God wants us to be, and it will help us be the neighbor making a positive impact where we live.

Pursuing Him,
