LIFE LESSONS FROM THE GOOD SAMARITAN!
Updated: Jul 15
Treasured by God!
Remember the story of the Good Samaritan? It was the religious folk that left him on the road hurt, to die! They ignored him, going so far as to cross the street to avoid seeing him. It took a Samaritan to stop, render aid, and provide healing - at a cost to him.
And this, my Christian brothers and sisters is why the church cannot remain silent. You cannot silently bear one another's burdens. You cannot silently rejoice with those who are rejoicing or cry with those who are crying. You cannot remain silent about injustice! All your silence does is empower the oppressors!
Just because you may not like the way this is unfolding, and there's a lot not to like, doesn't mean you remain uninvolved because it doesn't affect you! When it affects one of us, we all need to show up. Don't let the negative reporting and the media's manipulation of events cause you to be okay with doing nothing. You cannot be okay with what is happening! When you do, you become part of the problem.
Jesus is the answer. When you profess to love Him, but figuratively cross the street, when your sisters and brothers are being murdered, being denied justice that you take for granted, being taken advantage of, and so much more then please stop misrepresenting yourself as a Christian. Jesus went to Samaria, why aren't you?
