Won't you be my neighbor? - Week 3

Some have suggested that Fred Rogers was too good to be true. Over the years urban legends have come up to prove that he really was not who we all thought he was. But...they were just that...stories... and in the end what we know about him is this: What we saw every week on Mr. Rogers Neighborhood was really who he was! Shouldn't the same be said about us? Shouldn't our actions and words match and reveal who we are?

The Big Idea: What you do reveals who you are!

Key Scripture (Colossians 3: 12-17 CSB): 12Therefore, as God’s chosen ones, holy and dearly loved, put on compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience, 13bearing with one another and forgiving one another if anyone has a grievance against another. Just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you are also to forgive. 14Above all, put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity. 15And let the peace of Christ, to which you were also called in one body, rule your hearts. And be thankful. 16Let the word of Christ dwell richly among you, in all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another through psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. 17And whatever you do, in word or in deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
