Sunday, August 5: Questions of Jesus
proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell among the robbers?
In this familiar passage we hear a call to love our neighbor, but beneath that there is a reminder of just how difficult that is. To love “them” can be nearly impossible! We have a thousand excuses why “they” are not really supposed to be loved. To those who know the law of Moses well, this command to love our neighbors shows us how far we fall short of God’s love. The bad news is we fall short on our own, the good news is what Jesus came to bring.
