July 10 Luke 10:25-37 ~ Who is my neighbor?
This week we hear the Good Samaritan parable. Who is my neighbor? Jesus’ answer to that question will always challenge us. All those who we do not like are our neighbors. So are our enemies as well as those who threaten us. The Samaritan represents all these things to the Jewish people of the time. Being faithful in our discipleship, then, means treating everyone as our beloved neighbor with care and dignity.
