Luke 10:29 But wanting to justify himself, he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”
How should I treat this person—as female or male, as a person of color, as a person without a home, as a person who has a drug problem, as a person who is dressed or speaks differently than I do? Why don’t we treat a person like a person, the way we would want to be treated?
The next time you come across a person in the supermarket who drops a box of cereal—a person who is clearly having one of those days, who might be very different from you, who might not say thank you—what will you ask yourself? Or will you simply help the person, your neighbor and a child of God?
MOVING FORWARD: Find a way to bless your neighbor today.
