Jesus replied: “’Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
Now comes the fun part. Invest your life in your 4 X fours.
Four times a year, at least, invest your time and money in their lives. Have them over for dinner. Take them to a ball game. Help them with a project around the house. Have lunch with them. Keep their kids so they can have a date night.
In most cases, they have to trust you before they will trust your God, AND, you must be real! They must sense you care about them and are not just after another convert so you will look good in the eyes of your pastor.
If you will invest your life in the lives of your 4 X fours when that 3 a.m. phone call needs to be made, it will be you they are calling because they trust you and know you really care for them. Invest your life in their lives. It takes time, effort, and yes, money, but it is the greatest thing you can spend those resources on.
