The Compassionate Neighbor

One of the advantages of living on an island where there is a mixture of rich and poor is that after a major disaster, we are suddenly on the same level even if it is only temporary. 

The more affluent folks usually recover faster than the working class population. Consequently, they are able use their influence to help the less fortunate.

Why does it have to take a disaster for us to do good?

Could it be that God allows natural disasters to occur to bring awareness to the plight of our neighbors?

‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,’ and ‘your neighbor as yourself.’ (Luke 10:27)

Who is our neighbor?

Someone asked Jesus this question and He told them the parable of the good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37).

The Samaritan symbolized the oil and wine and this is how God wants us to treat each other all the time.

But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was. And when he saw him, he had compassion. So he went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine; and he set him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him. (Luke 10:33-34)

 

 

 

We are living in serious times and we need to know the provision that God has made for us and how we can be prepared for the return of the Lord.
