When your child cries because of the cruelty of your neighbor, does the command to love them still matter? If so, what does that love look like? The Neighbor is a true story of one family's attempt to follow seemingly easy commands such as "Love your neighbor as yourself" and "Do good to those who hate you." Through a series of increasingly difficult encounters, a new neighbor quickly becomes an enemy. Life is turned upside down as the family realizes that loving one's enemy, while a feel-good thought, can be life-altering and deeply painful. So painful in fact, that it can bring you to question the goodness and love of God. Through this messy journey, we see the path we are called to walk as followers of Christ is not meant to be easy. It's not meant to be comfortable. But it is the way to the very heart of God.
