Being A Good Neighbor
Pastor Bob speaks on the parable of the good Samaritan to discuss the question of "who is my neighbor?" In the context of of the passage in Luke 10, it was understood that your neighbor was anyone in need. But everyone you come in contact with, everyone around you is your neighbor and is worthy of the overflow mercy, grace and love you are connected to from Heaven. By the very nature of drawing a line in defining who to love, you create space where love might not exist. When you can look at the truth of who someone really is and love that, any protecting shell will begin to crack and their true self will begin to shine through - and this is easy for you to do as a believer that is connected to Heaven.
