Won’t You Be My Neighbor - Blessed to Be a Blessing

Until we understand the power of receiving, there is no power in giving. Brene Brown says it this way, “Until we can receive with an open heart, we’re never really giving with an open heart. When we attach judgment to receiving help, we knowingly or unknowingly attach judgment to giving help.” Being a good neighbor involves a willingness, an openness and a sense of vulnerability to receive. We are not called to be a hero in our neighborhood, simply someone who is willing to mutually sharing life.

Matthew 28:16-20

16Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them. 17And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted. 18And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. (KJV)
