Becoming a Neigbour


“What do you think? Which of the three became a neighbour to the man attacked by robbers?” - Luke 10 v 36

Jesus tells a story that has become know as "The Good Samaritan" in response to a Lawyer getting off on trying to split hairs with Him. He wanted a theoretical discussion where Jesus was focused on the outcome.

The lawyer was looking for Jesus to define who his neighbour was. He was looking to restrict his care, love and grace. Where Jesus was looking for a certain type of person he was looking for opportunities to become a neighbour. Circumstances to show love & grace.

Choose to BECOME a neighbour.
