Every Christian knows the famous commandment to “love thy neighbor.” But, although you might try your best to follow the golden rule, Bishop Tracie Williams Dickey says many of us could be doing more to spread God’s love. A renowned spiritual advisor, teacher, and author based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Bishop Tracie Williams Dickey’s ministry is one of healing, redemption, and empowerment. She urges her fellow Christians to step up in the new year by giving a little more of themselves in His name.
4 Ways to Be a Better Neighbor
Lend a Hand to Strangers
Whether you see someone struggling to carry their groceries to their doorstep or notice someone appears lost at a bus station, offer to lend a hand. Bishop Tracie Williams Dickey says that often, we are so caught up in our own busy lives that we fail to notice what’s happening around us. Or, we assume someone else will come to the rescue. In 2020, take the initiative to lend a hand. Small acts of kindness can make a big difference.
Of course, you can make an even bigger impact by volunteering. Volunteering can come in many forms, whether it’s teaching Sunday school or at a community center or sorting and packing food at a food bank. Bishop Tracie Williams Dickey encourages her congregation to dedicate at least a couple of hours a week to volunteering in your community.
Bishop Tracie Williams Dickey says mission trips are one of the best ways to spread God’s word and love. An International Bishop, she has traversed the globe to spread the gospel and has learned as much as she has taught in these exchanges. While mission trips are often an activity for teens and young adults, Bishop Tracie Williams Dickey says people of all ages can benefit from these experiences and it can even be a family affair.
Volunteering involves donating your time and energy, but you can also donate in other ways. The holiday season is a popular time to donate to charities, but organizations need help throughout the year. You can donate funds yourself or host a fundraiser with your church, Bishop Tracie Williams Dickey suggests, for a cause that is close to your heart and community. You can also work the spirit of giving into your spring cleaning by donating gently-used items you no longer need.
