Reflection: We continue today looking at this summer’s curriculum, “La Frontera.” Since we are into a new month, we are now doing to look at Day 2, which focuses on the story of the Good Samaritan.
The importance of this story is that Jesus wants us to know that no one is beyond our concern or aid. We need to look for our neighbors in both those who live near us and those who live far away. We also need to look for our neighbors in those who look like us and those who do not look like us. Neighbors are people in need.
Today, I hope you think about your neighbors or people who are in need. Think both locally and globally. What can you do to help your neighbors? –Chad Hershberger
