Scripture to Meditate on, Zechariah 8:16-17

Category:Spiritual Tags : 

From my daily reading today…

16 These are the things that ye shall do; Speak ye every man the truth to his neighbour; execute the judgment of truth and peace in your gates: 17 and let none of you imagine evil in your hearts against his neighbour; and love no false oath: for all these are things that I hate, saith the Lord.” – Zechariah 8:16-17

Hmmmm…. the Lord hates when we think evil of and mentally plan evil on our neighbors. Do you have unruly neighbors? Find a way to communicate truth to them, do good to them even if they do you wrong. Romans 12: 20 teaches, “Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.” Maybe instead of dishing back what bad things your neighbor does to you cut his grass, rake his leaves, send him a gift. You never know it just might open a door of communication for you to speak truth to him.
