A Workout

Posted on Updated on

This is the greatest Commandment according to Luke!

“You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your being, with all your strength, and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.”  “But who is my neighbor?” (Lk 10:25-37)

Jesus tells the story of the Good Samaritan.  The Good Samaritan didn’t know the injured man on the road.  He wasn’t from the same country or tribe.  He wasn’t from the same faith.  But he still helped him.  So who was a good neighbor?  The one who treated the injured Heart with muscleman with mercy.  He cleaned his wounds, picked him up and took him to a place that would help him.  He even paid for his healthcare.

A good parable to talk about during the Year of Mercy!

How will you get your spiritual workout?  We all could use a little help and a little mercy!  So be a neighbor to everyone around you!  Stay strong!
