Luke 10: 36  Which of these three, was a neighbor…

Ok my friend you have heard the story.  I ask you to weigh the evidence and the merits of the story and use your wisdom and knowledge to determine who is neighbor.  “The one who showed mercy,” came the reply.  Jesus replied, “Go and do likewise.”  Don’t just talk about your faith.  Don’t think that going to church and dropping a Hamilton in the collection plate is going to do it.  No, put it to work.  Put it into action.  Show your faith to the world.  Jesus is saying if it’s a choice of being strictly adherent to some teaching or showing loving compassion, always come down on the side of loving compassion.  “Talking the talk” is no where near as important as “walking the walk.”  Amen.
