Don’t Be A Hypocrite! Show God’s Love And Compassion

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

There Will Always Be Poor People In The Land. Therefore I Command You To Be Open handed Toward Your Fellow Israelites Who Are Poor And Needy In Your Land.
Deuteronomy 15:11

Mark 14:7

Matthew 26:11

John 12:8

Driving Through The Parking Lot They Spot Him
There He Is, Father. There’s That Guy I Told You About Last Night.”
Sure Enough, Standing Opposite The Grocery Store Out Near The Traffic Light Is A Weary-Looking Boy Of Sixteen Or Seventeen. He Is Thin And Dirty And Holding A Hand-Lettered Sign That Says, “Will Work For Food!”
As Mr. Nnamdi Silently Wonders About The Boy’s Story – How He Got Here And Why He Left Wherever He Was – Ten Years Old Obinna Exclaim, “Let’s Stop And Help Him!
Mr. Nnamdi Is Startled. “Uh, Help Him? How? What Do You Mean?
I Mean We Can Stop And Pick Him Up. Let’s Take Him Home. He Could Help Us Do Some Yard Work Or Wash The Cars
I Don’t Know, Son! That Might Not Be A Good Idea.
Mr Nnamdi Is Thinking About An Incident A Few Years Back In Which A Nearby Christian Couple Picked Up A Young Hitchhiker, They Wanted Only To Give – To Show And Share The Love Of Christ. He Wanted Only To Take – Their Car, Their Credit Cards, And Their Lives.
Mr. Nnamdi Shivers At The Thought And Adds, “Besides, Son, Don’t You Remember? We Told Mom We’d Take Her To The Market Today.
But Dad!,” Obinna Protects, “We Can Go To The Market Any Day….That Boy Over There Looks Like He’s Really Hungry.
Dad Is Squirming, “Uh, Son, It’s, Er, Kind Of Complicated To Explain, See, Some People Really Are Needy. And We Should Help Them, But Other People Are In Trouble Because They Keep Making Bad Choices. Or They’re Lazy And Just Looking For A Hand-Out.”
“But His Sign Says He’s Willing To Work.
Dad Doesn’t Know What To Do. His Head Is Saying, Danger! Keep Driving. Don’t Get Involved! His Heart Is Saying, Don’t Be A Hypocrite! Help This Young Boy, And Show Your Son What Compassion Is All About.
Just Then The Light Turns Yellow, As Mr. Nnamdi Eases To A Stop, The Young Runaway Looks Right At Him. Dad Glances Over At His Son. The Ten Year Old’s Face Is One Giant Question Make.
Showing God’s Love And Compassion Can Sometimes Be An Uncomfortable Proposition.

The Parable Of The Good Samaritan
25 A Teacher Of The Law Came Up And Tried To Trap Jesus. “Teacher,” He Asked, “What Must I Do To Receive Eternal Life?”
26 Jesus Answered Him, “What Do The Scriptures Say? How Do You Interpret Them?”
27 The Man Answered, “‘Love The Lord Your God With All Your Heart, With All Your Soul, With All Your Strength, And With All Your Mind’; And ‘Love Your Neighbor As You Love Yourself.’”
28 “You Are Right,” Jesus Replied; “Do This And You Will Live.”
29 But The Teacher Of The Law Wanted To Justify Himself, So He Asked Jesus, “Who Is My Neighbor?”
30 Jesus Answered, “There Was Once A Man Who Was Going Down From Jerusalem To Jericho When Robbers Attacked Him, Stripped Him, And Beat Him Up, Leaving Him Half Dead.
31 It So Happened That A Priest Was Going Down That Road; But When He Saw The Man, He Walked On By On The Other Side.
32 In The Same Way A Levite Also Came There, Went Over And Looked At The Man, And Then Walked On By On The Other Side.
33 But A Samaritan Who Was Traveling That Way Came Upon The Man, And When He Saw Him, His Heart Was Filled With Pity.
34 He Went Over To Him, Poured Oil And Wine On His Wounds And Bandaged Them; Then He Put The Man On His Own Animal And Took Him To An Inn, Where He Took Care Of Him.
35 The Next Day He Took Out Two Silver Coins And Gave Them To The Innkeeper. ‘Take Care Of Him,’ He Told The Innkeeper, ‘And When I Come Back This Way, I Will Pay You Whatever Else You Spend On Him.’”
36 And Jesus Concluded, “In Your Opinion, Which One Of These Three Acted Like A Neighbor Toward The Man Attacked By The Robbers?”
37 The Teacher Of The Law Answered, “The One Who Was Kind To Him.”
Jesus Replied, “You Go, Then, And Do The Same.”
