OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR TEENS 7 MARCH 2019 – GOOD NEIGHBOURLINESS I
MEMORISE: For better is a neighbor that is near than a brother far off. Proverbs 27:10b
Please read: Proverbs 18:24
When you need urgent help, the closest people to you are usually your neigbours, if you have been nice to them, then it will be easy for them to come to your aid, but if you have been cruel to them, then God help you.
The widow of Zarephath was able to get many empty vessels because her neigbours did not hesitate to lend her their vessels. This shows that she had been nice to them earlier. Imagine if she had been cruel to them before, they would have refused to lend her their vessels and she would have lost her miracle. It is also worthy of note that the neigbours had empty vessels to lend to her because they were poor themselves, otherwise, the vessels wouldn’t have been empty. Some teenagers are only nice to the rich children around. This is wrong and dangerous, you may find yourself in a position where you need help one day and the only person that can help you is one of those that you have been looking down on. Be kind to everyone, especially your neigbours, your miracle may just be dependent on that.
What you sow is what you will reap.
