We were reading the Good

We were reading the Good Samaritan parable (Luke 10:25-37) in class the other night. I find it very interesting that Jesus never answered the laywer’s question. The lawyer asked, “Who is my neighbor?” (vs. 29). But Jesus answered by telling him “This is how to be a neighbor” (vs. 36-37). In other words, he seems to shift the emphasis from “Who is there for me?” to “How can I be there for others?”

I think this speaks volumes to developing community and mission. What do you think?
