But Who Is My Neighbor?

A certain man with no shoes was riding on a bus in Canada, so a Muslim took off his shoes, gave them to the shoeless man and disappeared.

It’s worth remembering that Jesus deliberately made Samaritans–ancestral enemies of the Jews–the hero of his parable in order to point out that all it takes to be a neighbor is to act like one. Such small acts of charity are what save the whole world by the grace of Christ.

    Such small acts of charity are what save the whole world by the grace of Christ.

    And yet, for too many of us, acts of charity are all but insurmountable mountains. Dire risks hang over the heads of those who would so much as make an attempt. Asking God for help would be futile since He is one of the least equipped for and least involved in such things. And the notion that charity is for the weak continues to be popular.
