Read: Luke 10:25-37

Reflect:

  1. What do you notice about the different responses the travelers had to the beaten man? What obstacles keep you from stopping to serve someone as you journey through a day?
  2. Who has God placed on your heart to serve in this season? What would it look like to serve them this week? Are there ways you could partner with others to better meet their needs?
  3. When have you experienced someone going above and beyond to serve you? What was it like to be on the receiving end? How does this experience impact the way you serve others?

Remarks:

Once again Jesus is keeping things simple for our sake. There are countless ways to serve others. Just look around you and ask God to show you how you can help someone in need.

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails” (1 Corinthians 13:4-8 NIV).
