Who is your neighbor according to the bible? Is it the person living next door?
As a Born Again Christian, I often thought about those questions. From childhood, I understood that the person living
next door was my neighbor.
If someone asked me, I would say that so and so was my neighbor.
That changed as I matured and became a Born Again Christian.
Now I believe that my
neighbor can be a different person or people depending upon where I am and what I'm what I am doing. I may not know their
name, I may not even see them.
My neighbor is the person or people driving in the vehicle
that's in front and behind me, in the car that passes me. It's the person I speak to on the phone and yes, it's
the telemarketer. The people at the supermarket and the people in the lineup. My neighbor is the person that sends me an e
mail, the delivery man or woman, the person who gives me terrible service.
We can go
on and on, however; I simply view my neighbor as a person or people that I can affect by my presence.
