I have so many questions and so few answers today.
But the one question I think I can and should tackle is,
How can I know and love my neighbor better today?
Maybe it will help me build relationship and trust, for when hard times come upon them in the future. They could call on me for childcare help or grocery runs. Or for the young ladies entering adolescence in our neighborhood, they might see me as an adult they can turn to when they’re terrified to go to their parents.
Maybe it will give me understanding on what immediate needs my neighbors have right here and right now.
Maybe it will challenge me to more intentionally live below my means so others can just… live.
Maybe it will make me aware of opportunities to make a difference for someone right next door, when I feel so terribly helpless for a big hurting world.
