Guest teacher Tracy Wilde taught through the Parable of the Good Samaritan; challenging us to consider if the primary question is not merely, "who is our neighbor?", but instead whether or not we are willing to truly be a neighbor, with compassion put into action.
Luke 10: 25-37
Matthew 16: 21-28
Be honest about the biases of your own personal "neighborhood". What conscious decisions have you made to exclude others based on (these or countless other factors) their identity, political or religious allegiance, or social status? In light of these admissions; how is God challenging you to be a neighbor to these and to all? Are you willing to step into the discomfort; to "go and to do" this week?
