Know Your FOUR

The Good Samaritan is a great story, and we all love good stories. They’re powerful and Jesus was a master storyteller. He used lessons, props, humor, history, current events, and he told the stories or “parables” that were full of wisdom, insight, and truth. It’s almost as if he were painting a picture of God’s Kingdom with words and his listeners drank it up (for better or worse).
In this particular story, Jesus raises the question: “Who is my neighbor?” and invites us even today to ponder it. It reinforces the fact that God is for everyone and we should be as well, but it can’t happen without genuine risk, investment, and a hear that is captured by the love of God. Only then can the “eyes of our heart” be open to the world around us so we can team up with God in changing it for the better
