How does the parable of the Good Samaritan change your view of who your neighbor is?
Place yourself in the story as the person who fell among robbers and imagine that Jesus is the Good Samaritan. How do the details of His care for the man help illustrate the good news?

Pray as a team: Instead of seeking to justify or elevate ourselves by how we love our neighbors, let’s pray that our lives would be a sacrificial and worshipful response to the great love of Jesus. Pray that God would show us the people and needs in our paths to show the love of Jesus to. Amen.
