Neighborly

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: Luke 10:25-37

Today we come to the well-known parable of the Good Samaritan. I love how Jesus artfully turns the tables on this smug, over confident lawyer when he (the lawyer) tries to "lead" Jesus to the answer he wants to hear. Not a wise move for the lawyer ... or for us.

So who would you say your neighbor is based on this passage? What's one example where you loved your neighbor as yourself? How has helping another person in need impacted you? Tami

Or neighbor is anyone who truly stands in need. Dien through the years I've found that you when we help our neighbor, be it with tangible needs, moral support, a listening ear, etc., we experience a blessing ourselves.

I agree with Brian...When I am able and willing to help someone, I receive blessings in return. This is not the reason I help others, but it is an encouragement. I recently financially helped a young man in our congregation. He is so anxious to 'pay it back' but I know it would be a struggle so I am encouraging him to 'pay it forward'. I'll be interested to see how God uses him in the future!
