- Who is your neighbor?
- What do you do to help your neighbors?
- Tell of a positive experience when you met someone who was not what they appeared to you.
Reading: Luke 10: 25-37
The parable you just read is probably one of the most famous stories that Jesus told in His lifetime. I'm sure you heard of the Good Samaritan before, but it is a good story to read again and remind ourselves how to be a neighbor. "Who is our neighbor?" asked the religious leader. That is a question we too should ask ourselves often. We should go out of our way to show compassion towards though we come in contact with.
One day a man who looked scruffy walked into my office building. Two of us were standing there and struck up a short conversation with him. He began talking about how life is precious and we should have a positive outlook. I would have never thought he would have said those things, based on his appearance. But, by being a neighbor, I was treated to his good words. --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
Closing: Say a prayer to God, asking that you become a better neighbor.
