A Good Neighbor

Every day of our lives we encounter people with needs.  It might be on an exit ramp, on a city sidewalk, in the office cubicle next to us, or just a friend or loved-one who needs to chat.  Do we notice?  Many are yearning for just a simple conversation; to know that someone cares.  Many are deeply hurting inside, carrying either the scars of physical pain or emotional baggage.

These days, we ponder whether or not we should help; should I get involved, is it safe?!  No easy answers here, friends.  This Sunday we will examine the biblical parable of the “Good Samaritan.”  You can check it out yourself in Luke 10, verses 25-37.  Read it several times and let the Holy Spirit speak to your heart about the relevance of this story for your life.

Until then, ponder these words of Jesus:  “What do you think?  Which of the three became a neighbor to the man attacked by robbers?”
