Ezra 1:6 NLT
And all their neighbors assisted by giving them articles of silver and gold, supplies for the journey, and livestock. They gave them many valuable gifts in addition to all the voluntary offerings.

Series: Who’s My Neighbour ?
What better way to express our love for God than by expressing our love for our people who God has placed among us. We have been studying on who are our neighbours that God has placed among us.
- How can we treat them
- What should we do in our relationship with them
- What does bible speak on how to love our neighbour
- What are the various ways that we can express our love towards them
In Ezra, chapter one is talking about the second exodus where people are moving to Israel and the neighbouring people are watching them and extend their help in the ways possible.
Question: Many times we are comfortable in helping people who are in need, but do we neglect helping christian ministries?
There are so many other people who are working really hard for God, going to rural places, who don’t look for attention, no one acknowledges them, they work for God with the little things they have. We need to extend our help to them with whatever we have with us to support not just for the people but for the destinies they have. The people who were helping the Israelites, they were not just expressing their love for their neighbours but also expressing their love for Jerusalem. If you love God, His church, His kingdom, His house and His work, we have to be excited to partner with what God is doing. Look for someone whom you can help fulfil the call on their life. In doing so we will became a good neighbour. It’s easy to say you love but not give. Take efforts to give and be generous. That is the mark of a true godly good neighbour.
Partner with us in our dream for revival. Your generosity goes towards supporting our initiatives to reach out, serve & transform lives.
