What a wonderful message. You have really captured the character of Mr. Oaks through your descprtive examples. Well-written. Your conclusion seems to be for all of us. This is one I will read again and again.

This was very inspirational. I am very glad you didn't pull out a surprise ending and tell me you were really talking about a tree, not a person. Let the reader decide if Mr. Oaks was a tree or a real person.
The lesson in the second to last paragraph is well-worded.
I would add, Everyone, especially Christians, should BE a neighbor like Mr. Oaks.
Thank you for sharing this!

A nice man wouldn't throw stuff in a neighbor's yard - thus, Mr. Oaks is a tree! I loved it! Great story, great comparisons and a really great job! Kudos!
