Yesterday, I wrote in the post: Noah Carries out His Purpose; the account of the days leading up to the flood and then the flood itself. God gave Noah a purpose and he was self-disciplined so that it was carried out to its conclusion.
Upon reflection, one thought is the need to organize neighborhoods and to encourage each other. Neighbors should know each other’s name and know each other’s story. What if a facebook page or group was started for your neighborhood to help with encouragement or communication?
Right now on Facebook, all it would take is one person to take the lead in setting up a page or group for their neighborhood. That way they could keep up with important information in the neighborhood. They could fight crime together and encourage neighbors together. They could work together with new ideas and pass along these ideas to other neighborhoods.
What if the mission was to establish better neighborhoods? It begins with prayer so start a prayer list of things you can pray about in your neighborhood. Write about your community; local festivals, and things to see and do. Write about jobs in the area, share pictures of the surrounding region and write short descriptions of what it is like to live in your community so neighbors from other parts of the world are given the opportunity for a virtual visit.
Each day with You God can be amazing and with the help of technology today, we can organize with the mission of creating a better world; a world in which neighbors pull for each other and are concerned about each other. Here’s an inspirational video for today: One Day at a Time – Jeremy Camp.
Lord, we lift You up today and pray for our neighborhoods. Some are broken and we need help to build them up one day at time. We ask that You create a wave of neighbors that are concerned about their neighborhoods and this wave goes across the vast ocean of neighborhoods and around the world.
