Behind every door in our neighborhoods there are dramas unfolding and people with life stories worth hearing. As long as those doors remain closed, we will never know how our kindness can be instrumental in bringing hope to those in distress; and we will never be enriched by listening to firsthand accounts of life from the perspective of others. Unless we take the time to introduce ourselves and become friends to our neighbors, our own lives are diminished.
At LifeNet, we truly believe that developing a heightened sense and habit of neighborliness is paramount to the success of anyone attempting to follow the principles of Jesus the Christ. For it is in the crucible of community that the fruit of Christ’s Spirit – love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control – can best be put into action.
