Dare to care

November 12, 2009

But a Samaritan, as he journeyed, came to where he was, and when he saw him, he had compassion.

--Luke 10:33

One of the most vivid and memorable examples of love in action is found in Luke 10. In this passage of Scripture, we are told about a Samaritan whose actions were so kind that people just naturally came to refer to him as the "good" Samaritan.

You probably remember the story. A Jewish man had been robbed, severely beaten, and left to die on the road to Jericho. A priest happened by and went out of his way to walk around the man. Likewise with a Levite, and again he was left to die.

And then a Samaritan came upon the scene.

Now in general, Jews and Samaritans were at odds with each other. A Samaritan was more likely to kick dirt into a Jew's wounds than to stop and render aid. But this was no typical Samaritan! He covered the man with his coat, and carried him into the city on his donkey. And he even paid for his shelter and care.

The Good Samaritan's love wasn't typical—just as your love shouldn't be typical.

As believers, the love of Christ should compel us to take action and go beyond what is expected to help a wounded, hurting neighbor. This is our calling!

So give someone in need a loving touch or a kind word! Be like the Good Samaritan, and dare to care! 

REAL LOVE TAKES ACTION AND GOES BEYOND WHAT IS EXPECTED.

OUR THANKS TO YOU!

Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out

Dear Friend,

Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today!  --Jack Graham
