The Thang: Who Is My Neighbor?
‘ And behold, a lawyer stood up to put him to the test, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” He said to him, “What is written in the Law? How do you read it?” But he, desiring to justify himself, said to Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?” And he said to him, “You have answered correctly; do this, and you will live.” Jesus replied, “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who stripped him and beat him and departed, leaving him half dead. Now by chance a priest was going down that road, and when he saw him he passed by on the other side. So likewise a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, as he journeyed, came to where he was, and when he saw him, he had compassion. He went to him and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he set him on his own animal and brought him to an inn and took care of him. And the next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper, saying, ‘Take care of him, and whatever more you spend, I will repay you when I come back.’ Which of these three, do you think, proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell among the robbers?” He said, “The one who showed him mercy.” And Jesus said to him, “You go, and do likewise.” ‘ Luke 10:25-37
Discussion: We are called to show compassion to our brothers and sisters in Christ. Observe that the Samaritan didn’t judge the man hurting. He didn’t question why the man was on the road hurting. He didn’t question why he was even on that road where bad things happened. He simply showed compassion.
How can we show compassion to our brothers and sisters that are hurting? How can we be the hands and feet of Jesus as we find people hurting along our road?
Thanks to the men that got up and joined in the discussion. Thank you for letting me lead you this morning in Monkey’s absence. I consider our fellowship more than just friendships. I consider each of you High Impact Men as brothers on a mission. May God continue to bless you and your family.
