Taking responsibility for lost-ness

I thought about an interesting parallel between taking responsibility for lost-ness in our neighborhoods spiritually and lost-ness for the children in our neighborhood physically. 

For example, if I see a child who is lost, I take responsibility and ask the child where their parents are. 

In the same way, I see my neighbors as people who are potentially lost and far from God but close to me. Therefore, I take responsibility by reaching out to them and rescuing them in Christ.

Do you see your neighbors this way? Why or why not?
