Love this, Kristi! The wisdom here is deep, and the writing so very lively.

It's funny...no one who's bleeding out ever gets all that concerned about whose blood is keeping him alive. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt, and if the Ayatollah Khomeini had donated the blood that saved my...uh, bacon...I would have written him a VERY nice letter, and invited him over for tea. (An invite for a beer probably would not have gone down well, but there you go.)

It really is a challenge to be a good neighbour to everyone and not to, even unintentionally, exclude or overlook certain people. It makes a big difference if we take time to listen to people who seem different from us and make the effort to get to know them. Often there are more similarities than we think and we can also appreciate the differences more. Visiting from FMF #13.

'Often some of the deepest relationships are formed when we venture across the literal or figurative road to engage with someone who seems to be the furthest thing from “our type”,' So true! Some of our best friends are virtual opposites from us. We used to be across the street neighbors. I love God's economy!

Yes, you hit the nail on the head. We are to love our neighbor. That's it. I have to be intentional about it. I still focus too much on me and my life stuff that there isn't a lot of room for my neighbor. That has to change. Many people in TX and LA are providing good examples this week. Thanks for the post.
