Reflection Questions: Who in my life do I need to forgive? What do I need to forgive them for, and how can I ask God to bless them?
Get to know your neighbors. It’s never been easier to shut off from the world and forget the problems other people are facing. That’s why it’s never been more important to love your neighbors as much as you love yourself. What are they passionate about? What are they struggling with? When you invest in the lives of others, you’ll find a deeper understanding of God’s love for the people He’s placed around you.
Reflection Question: Which of my neighbors needs an extra dose of love today?
Actively pursue unity. This might look like advocating on behalf of the vulnerable around you. It might look like patching up a rift between friends, or helping someone who can’t speak up for themselves. Whatever God calls you to do, He’ll equip you to do it. He has placed you where you are so that you can share His love and draw others close to Him.
