Who is my neighbor? This week Pastor Stephanie helps us explore the Story of the Good Samaritan to better understand God’s definition of a neighbor. Sometimes in life we get too focused on our own path to recognize our neighbor’s need passing them by. Sometimes we don’t stop to help because we don’t know what to do. Sometimes we think that the person in need doesn’t deserve our help because they are an outsider not our neighbor. At other times our lives are going so well we forget that we should also identify with the man who was robbed in need of rescue. When we recognize that Jesus is the Samaritan in the story, we both recognize our call to stop, change our focus, & help those in need (even if they would be considered more of an outsider than a neighbor by the world’s definition), and our own need for God’s help. Mr Rogers was right: It IS a beautiful day for a Neighbor!
