Jesus told us to love our neighbors the way that we love ourselves. In other words, we should be very intentional, thoughtful, and selfless in the way we see those around us.
It’s easy to want your home to be a sanctuary. We like our homes to be a retreat from the world, a place where we can let loose, kick off our shoes, and be comfortable. While our home should be that, it’s also still a mission field. It’s a mission field with people who take up residence next to, across from, or even in the same building as you.
When was the last time you were intentional about connecting with your neighbor? When was the last time you put effort into getting to know them, their story, and their faith? God put them in your life on purpose. Are you making the most of it?
