Luke — Still Go!

Day 3115: Another Monday to MMM – Make Mondays Matter! Touch a life today!

Scripture:  But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?” . . .  (Jesus then asked) “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?” The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.” Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.” Luke 10:29; 36,37

Thoughts/questions: Yesterday at church a 12 year old shared her 11th Initiative non-profit she created when she was 11. She was moved by her neighbors – her neighbors in Syria! She had become aware of the plight of the Syrian refugee children during a project she was doing at the school where I was working. She could actually be their neighbor, have mercy upon them, and follow Jesus’ statement, ‘Go and do likewise!’

Yep, similar to the previous post, again we are to Go! You won’t yet find 11th Initiative on Google, but she has partnered with World Vision, so who knows how her ‘neighbors’ will be impacted by this young lady’s vision! Outside of your local contacts and family, who are you being a neighbor to?

Spiritually, it is often a good thing to think outside of our locational box. Ministries and service opportunities can be local, but I encourage all of you God2me readers to see if God is leading you to a place of service outside of your locality. May many be touched by your life at home, in your neighborhood, and around the world!

Suggested Prayer: Dear Jesus, help me to follow Your injunction to “Go and do likewise . . .”
