Together in Faith: But wanting to justify himself, the lawyer asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?” Luke 10:29
This well-known introduction to the Good Samaritan story asks a question as appropriate for us today as it was 2,000 years ago: who is our neighbor? And it’s no easier to answer now than then. Unfortunately, the answer we often hear today is, “Our neighbor is the one like us.” The point of Jesus’ story, of course, is exactly the opposite. The question does bear repeating: who is our neighbor?
