    Taking care of you and taking care of your lawn are two different things. If he is taking care of you, I can see that.

    The Bible doesn't say anything about mowing a man's lawn, so I'm not going there. The Bible does say the cares of this world can choke the word.

    Better get out our lawn mowers and mow everyone's lawn to prove how righteous we are. :)

    Is this the state of Christianity today?

    how knocking the silliness off. i fully understood the lawn mowing post.. he felt like he should do it . your really should chill i mean serious .not everything thing we do in the Lord name is Bible . what does james say to him who knows to do good and does not IS A SIN. . for some odd reason a post can start out good. but in end in the dumpsters of garbage . anything you do out of a christian heart is a testimony . i had rather see a testimony than hear one . Jesus Anointed at Bethany mark 14
    6But Jesus said, “Let her alone. Why do you trouble her? She has done a good work for Me. 7For you have the poor with you always, and whenever you wish you may do them good; but Me you do not have always. 8She has {done what she could.} She has come beforehand to anoint My body for burial.

    might i ask what your doing ?

    Yes, lawn mowing. It's not about the lawn. There's a principle behind the act.

    It seem you're deliberately wanting to miss the larger point. I think we'll drop the lawn mower stuff as you've now gone to mocking what was made as a serious point.

    You like to argue,none suggested not to

    If you think Janes is in heresy when said pure religion is this that the we take care of the fatherless,the poor and the widows .kindly ask or Tell God he is wrong.in my state grasd uncut will after a month draw all manner of snakes and some are poisonous. Sheesh blessING my neighbor by cutting his yard is something I never would have inagined.ya know I have a rekiable,proven during irma of sinner friends by large who aided me aND I them.now then imagine a church doing that and to our neighbour's and how that sets the example of Christ and also the chance of telling the lost.

    [Quote ]preach the Gospel,and If necessary use words [/quote] st.Francis of assisi.I know of a Godly man who until after I was told didn't know he waa saved.his example of Christ was training his two sons to be caring they helped me a few times without being asked .they simply walk my area to exercise and are known to be good kids.

    Let your light be shone so that men will Glorify the father in heaven. Loving the lost in the manner of meeting physical needs is an example Jesus set.

    Kinda lost track of the point. So it's not about cutting grass, it's about compassion and mercy. Jesus showed compassion and mercy. So I would agree. That's what makes a good neighbour.

    But even sinners can show compassion. So what makes us different? We have the truth. Isn't that what sets us apart?

    Mark,

    Taking care of my lawn is part of taking care of my property where I live. It is related to caring for the totality of my personhood. If my lawn grows up around my ears, what kind of danger will that represent around my house in the humidity, rain and cyclones of SE Qld in the summer.

    Ever heard of mice, rats, ants, and snakes inhabiting the mulch provided by long grass?

    You must be kidding when you try to separate caring for me from caring for the exterior of my house - the grass.

    I hope you learn what caring for the whole person means.

    Oz
