Love Compassion and The Good Neighbor



Who is my neighbor?

The focus of various compassion ministries and public charities this time of year is naturally on helping those less fortunate--people who are cold, hungry, and lacking life's basics.

What some miss in the focus on being a "Good Samaritan" is the identification of the neighbor in the famous story.

Who is my neighbor? The neighbor is the compassionate Samaritan--not the beaten victim in need of much love and compassion. The focus of the story is on the people of faith who need to develop the virtue of neighborly love.

Story from Luke 10:25-37
