Clarity is very helpful for following through and getting things done. Confusion or fog does the opposite and takes away our urgency to act.
When it comes to loving our neighbor, sometimes we all try to fog up God's command. His command though is pretty simple & clear, "You must love the Lord your God...And love your neighbor as yourself." However, we say things like, "It's not as simple or easy as that." Or we ask what a religious expert asked, "Who is my neighbor?"
In Luke 10:25-37, we see Jesus tell a parable that doesn't answer the man's question of "who is his neighbor". Rather, the Good Samaritan parable answers the question of "how to neighbor". It really is quite simple. We should help our neighbors who need help.
Our challenge from this week of the series is to give to support & share the amazing gift of Christmas with kids around the world through Operation Christmas Child.
