You give “servanthood” a really good name,
Friend and neighbor are one and the same.
You watch for distinctive opportunities,
Ways in which to serve, to aid and please.
Someone is watching your many kindly acts,
Not keeping score just as regards to facts,
So on that day when you stand before Him,
He’ll decree your benevolence was never slim.
Adrienne Gallagher Dominici 1/26/04
"After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage each other with these words."
1 Thessalonians 4:17-18
She was a good neighbor, she was helpful at every turn, and she waited anticipating when she could next be of service. She was well into her eighties and she would come with her snow blower and clear my Mother’s sidewalk of that day’s precipitation. She would come without request and she would have left unnoticed except for the noise her old machine made. She would finish the job and she would head on home. She was a silent servant doing the will of God.
Oh, you think the will of God only involves moving mountains? Well, it also includes moving snow, or garbage or obstacles from the path of the less fortunate. Do you know someone who needs some barrier banished? Perhaps God is calling you to be that good neighbor, acquaintance, or friend. Maybe it is time to get out your tools, your talents, and your gifts and start putting them to work in the service of the Lord. After all, He did not give them to you to squander them on idleness. Let’s all be watchful not wasteful.

Yes, we all need to take heed of this message and remind ourselves to be the good "neighbour" that God has called us to. We truly need more samaritans in our world today!
