Lenten Devotions

“Just then a lawyer stood up to test Jesus. ‘Teacher,’ he said, ‘what must I do to inherit eternal life?’ 26 He said to him, ‘What is written in the law? What do you read there?’ 27 He answered, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.’ 28 And he said to him, ‘You have given the right answer; do this, and you will live.’ 29 But wanting to justify himself, he asked Jesus, ‘And who is my neighbor?’"
--Luke 10:25-29

“Who is my neighbor?” Wouldn’t it be nice if that question never needed to be asked? We constantly separate ourselves from one another by our societal classifications—income, ethnicity, nationality, race, gender, party line, etc. What if none of that was an issue? What if we simply brought comfort and aid to all who needed it, knowing that our lives are interconnected through our bond as brothers and sisters of humanity?
