So a guy with a virus was travelling a dangerous road, and ended up attacked by people who demanded the last bit of toilet paper he owned. They beat him up, took everything else he had, and left him to die alone because after all, he might be contagious.
Several Christians passed him by because he might be contagious and after all, he had nothing they could use! Anyway, they couldn’t spare the time because they were on their way to buy and hoard as much water, sanitizer and toilet paper as they could gather.
Finally another stranger came by who took pity on him. He treated his wounds and his illness. He took no fear for himself because he knew the Lord was looking after him. He actually touched the man and even gave him a ride in his vehicle to the nearest hospital and gave him some of his own toilet paper. He helped pay for his recovery. (From Luke 10)
Now friends on this Easter Sunday, which one are you?
How have you responded in the way of Christ?
Are we so shallow that we become part of the problem?
What are you hoarding? Perhaps it is the love of Christ.
“What do you think? Which of the three became a neighbor to the man attacked by robbers?”(Luke 10:36, MSG)
Prayer- Lord, when you give us the opportunity to be Christ-like, please also give us the courage to do so. Amen.
