Life of Christ Day 12 Devo | Who Is My Neighbor
In today’s video, Marc tells about a moment when Jesus takes a lawyer’s question and flips it on its head. At the conclusion of telling this story, he asked the lawyer, “Who proved neighbor?” In other words, Jesus did not allow the lawyer—nor does he allow us—to draw lines that define insiders and outsiders.
We are to be merciful to everyone. We are to love our neighbor, even those who are outside of our spheres of influence. And the lawyer responded with, “The one who showed mercy,” to which Jesus concluded by saying, “Go and do likewise.”
Who is someone outside of your circle who could be touched by God’s mercy today?
Go and be the neighbor.
