Romans 15:1–7 (ESV)
The Example of Christ
15 We who are strong have an obligation to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves. 2 Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up. 3 For Christ did not please himself, but as it is written, “The reproaches of those who reproached you fell on me.” 4 For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. 5 May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, 6 that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. 7 Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.

The 9th and 10th Commandments:
9th: You shall not covet your neighbor’s house.
10th: You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, maid servant or manservant, ox donkey or anything other property.

We are not to covet, but called to help protect your neighbor.  We are to help take care of our neighbors in good times and bad.  We are to be the Good Samaritan and to not be afraid to stop and render aid.  When they are in need, we are to be there for them.

I pray: O Lord, help me to not tear down my neighbor in times of need, but to come to his or her aid.  Help me to build them up instead of tearing them down.  Amen.

"Depart in Peace" What a blessing when the world is so chaotic! Followers of Christ can find their peace in Him.
