“Don’t let the fact that your neighbors have different morals, a different lifestyle, or a different worldview than you stand in the way of you taking the time to really get to know them.”

We know that we’re all called to build relationships with our neighbors and to be good friends.  But, what does that practically look like?  How can we actually love the non-Christians in our lives, not as projects, but as people with unique stories and real struggles, joys, and hurts? This week we'll explore four practical steps to loving our neighbors the way Christ has loved us.

Application Questions:

1. If you haven't already, draw a map of your street or apartment building. Fill in the map with the names of your neighbors.

2. How could you most pray for each of your neighbors?

3. Which of your neighbors' stories do you know?

4. Which of your neighbors do you know how you could serve them?

5. What is one thing you could do to take the "next step" with each of your neighbors?

6. Spend dedicated time this week praying for your neighbors.
