Reflections on being neighborly

Well, I guess we spoke too soon, for as I write this the county is on fire.

Maybe by the time this column goes to press the Dark Valley, PK and Rhodes Ranch fires will be a memory, but without the assistance of so many fire departments, volunteers, people to feed and water the people fighting the fire, prayers, and so forth, it would not be possible, and the county would literally burn up once again.

This is what we as citizens of our community and surrounding area, as Americans, as Christians should be counted upon to do at all times. Help one another.

In Matthew 25 Christ says, “Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.”

And again, the Bible tells us, “Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.”
