“What happens when love crosses the street?” – Rudy Rasmus (World Methodist Conference - 2016)
This question has such a strong challenge for us as a Christian community. When we love all people we should be willing to cross the 'street' to help them out or to draw alongside them. It reminds us of the story of the Good Samaritan, who was willing to cross the street (religious stigma, culture norms etc) in order to help someone out. If you haven't read that story for a while, then read it in Luke 10.
Are you willing to cross the street to help one of your neighbours if they are in need?
Who could this imply in your life today?
Luke 10:33-34 - “Then a despised Samaritan came along, and when he saw the man, he felt compassion for him. 34 Going over to him, the Samaritan soothed his wounds with olive oil and wine and bandaged them.
