“You shall not see your countryman’s ox or his sheep straying away, and pay no attention to them; you shall certainly bring them back to your countryman.” (Deut. 22:1)
Common courtesy was built into the fabric of God’s laws to the Jews. Looking out for the well-being of your neighbor was simply part of being a servant of God. Whether it be returning an ox that strayed or in more modern application, returning someone’s dropped wallet or forgotten sunglasses, there is always room for more kindness and human decency.
Never underestimate the power of simply being a thoughtful citizen and neighbor. In a selfish and sin-grieved world, every act of selflessness matters.
“For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” (Gal. 5:14)
