Do you want to live beside good neighbors? If so, you understand the value in having good neighbors. These values are the comfort and safety of knowing if you forget to lock a door, need a package delivered while not home, house sitting while away on vacation, baby sitting, checking on you when ill, a neat lawn with no overgrown grass or trash blowing over into your yard, no loud music, fighting, drunkenness, cursing, or drug use, that your neighbors have your interest in mind. However, these kind of neighbors don't just happen without guidance, for people must be taught that "no man is an island." People must learn that they are indeed "their brother's keepers," and live to prove it. In this fast paced world, apathy and selfishness creates bad neighbors because people become concerned only for themselves. These evil traits must disappear from neighbors' hearts and be replaced with acts on love, concern, and responsibility toward others. The Bible, the word of God, is where man learns how to treat neighbors because God said long ago that a man must love his neighbor (Exodus 20:15–17, Leviticus 19:13–18, Deuteronomy 19:14, Deut. 23:24–25, Proverbs 3:27–29, Prov. 25:17–18, Romans 13:9–10, Rom. 15:2, Ephesians 4:25, Luke 6:31, Colossians 3:12–14). If people begin doing what the Bible teaches, there would be better neighbors everywhere.
