Neighbors All

No one tries to be a failure
Sometimes eyes deceive our thought
Then we fall and need each other
Neighbors all, in need of love

No one wants to be a failure
Everybody needs someone
Maybe if we help each other
No one needs to feel alone

No one, no one is a failure
Sometimes eyes can’t see it all
Everybody needs a shoulder
To lean on in case we fall

We are all part of God's promise
We all make mistakes, oh my
We are all still works in progress
In great need of one more try
We are all still works in progress
In great need of you and I

The Greatest Commandment
(Deuteronomy 6:1-19; Matthew 22:34-40)

Now one of the scribes had come up and heard their debate. 
Noticing how well Jesus had answered them, he asked Him, 
“Which commandment is the most important of all?”
Jesus replied, “This is the most important: 
‘Hear O Israel, the Lord our God is One Lord, and you shall love the Lord your God 
with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 
The second is this: 
‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
No other commandment is greater than these.”

Mark 12:28-31 

Who is our neighbor?
