An "expert in the law" once asked Jesus what he must do to inherit eternal life—and his question initiated a very interesting conversation.
The Law says to "love your neighbor as yourself," Jesus pointed out, so the next logical question is, "Who is my neighbor?"
Rather than offering an exhaustive list of neighbors and non-neighbors, Jesus told a story . . . the Parable of the Good Samaritan.
Out of that famous parable, Pastor Wayne Gordon draws more than forty characteristics of the man who was beaten, robbed, and left for dead on the road to Jericho--the character Jesus created to show Christians how to recognize their neighbors. The cool thing about this? We can catch Jesus' vision of what being a good neighbor really is! That makes it super practical.
Wayne joins us at 7 am ET with suggestions for meeting needs and changing the lives of people around us!
