TOO MANY NEIGHBORS
By this all will know that you are My disciples. If you have love for one another.
When the pictures, problems, and questions of hundreds of people scroll across our social media accounts, it is difficult to discern when and where to lend a hand. The man questioning Jesus, "Who is my neighbor?" was hoping for a boundary that would allow him to write off a group of people as undeserving of his love. As Christians who have experienced the generosity of God, the story of the Good Samaritan,invites us to ask Him, "Who are You calling me to love?".
Instead of feeling inadequate or scared that God may call us to a grandiose gesture on behalf of a stranger, we can confidently await His guidance. Small acts of kindness build momentum in our own lives and in the lives of those we serve. A mustard seed becomes a towering tree. As we practice giving and receiving our capacity for both for both expands. Although our gifts and impact may seem small, God delights in expanding them. Just as Jesus multiplied the fish and loaves after asking the disciples to feed the hungry crowd. He will provide all you need to do what He call you to. Do not waste time bothering whether you LOVE your neighbor, act as if you did.
