Love Your Neighbor Day 2012 is right around the corner!

That's right! Saturday, February 11th is Love Your Neighbor Day. This day is all about showing the love of Jesus Christ in a practical way to your neighbor, or anyone that could benefit from receiving love. I guess, really, that's all of us.

Now that you know WHO you want to show love to on Saturday, February 11th - let me help you with some ideas for HOW you can show love in a meaningful way.

Ideas for showing love to your neighbor:

  • Cook a meal
  • Write a thoughtful note
  • Invite them over for dinner
  • Eat out together (be sure to pay for their meal)
  • Offer to help them conquer a project they've been putting off around the house
  • Ask for prayer requests, or if they would like to pray with you
  • Make something homemade to give to them
  • If they have kids offer them free childcare so they can have a date night
  • If you're someone who can fix things, offer to fix something that is broken
  • Pay for the meal of the person behind you in the drive-through
  • Volunteer at a soup kitchen
  • Offer to help someone with their homework
  • Visit the residents in a nursing home, don't forget to bring snacks!
  • Take cookies or danishes to the local hospice
  • Take a ton of balloons to the Children's Hospital
A story to share from our past Love Your Neighbor Days:

Our family made cookies for our neighbors. We connected with three families. We told them we hoped they were having a good New Year. On the plate we wrote that we were praying for them.

This was something that we needed to do. We were glad to do this - to show the Love of God in a dark and busy world!

More to come!
