On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?” “What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?”
Luke 10:25-26
He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind . . .
Luke 10:27:a
Shema Israel
"Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength."

“. . . and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”
Luke 10:27b
"Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD."
Leviticus 19:18
In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead.
Luke 10:30
A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side.
Luke 10:31-32
But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him.
Luke 10:33-34
The next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’
Luke 10:35
“Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”
Luke 10:36
The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”
Luke 10:37
Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”
Love Our Neighbor As Ourselves
“The hardest spiritual work in the world is to love the neighbor as the self – to encounter another human being not as someone you can use, change, fix, help, save, enroll, convince or control, but simply as someone who can spring you from the prison of yourself, if you will allow it. All you have to do is recognize another you ‘out there’ – your other self in the world – for whom you may care as instinctively as you care for yourself. To become that person, even for a moment, is to understand what it means to die to your self. This can be as frightening as it is liberating. It may be the only real spiritual discipline there is.”
-Barbara Brown Taylor An Alter in the World
To let the Word of God dwell in us richly so that it shapes us as we apply its principles and teachings to our lives.
To see people through the eyes of Jesus as we identify their needs and seek to meet them in Christ-like ways.
Changed by the Love of Jesus
Impacting our neighbors
And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.
Hebrews 13:16
Blessing = the act of relieving the deficits, distresses, and difficulties of another.
The act of imparting life, restoration and wholeness.
How will you love your neighbor today?
Do not be overcome by the brokenness in the world. All things break. And all things can be mended and transformed Not with words, as they say, but with intention and action. So go. Love intentionally, extravagantly, unconditionally. Your neighbor, the broken world waits in darkness for the light that is you.
Be God’s people in our fragmented world.
In the name of the Jesus Christ the Healer, Redeemer.

"Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it."Malachi 3:10
