"His Touch," 2 Kings 13:14-21, May 6, 2021



Jesus replied, “What does the law of Moses say? How do you read it?” The man answered, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind.’ And, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” “Right!” Jesus told him. “Do this and you will live!” The man wanted to justify his actions, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?” (Luke 10:26-29, NLT)

The great scandals of the world have occurred when ostensibly religious men, like the priest and the Levite have not been neighborly men. Wireless telegraphy and rapid transportation will soon bring remote sections of the world into our immediate neighborhood. It remains to be seen whether or not we shall quickly learn to be good neighbors to these great sections of humanity that have so suddenly become our neighbors. — Edward Increase Bosworth [1918]

Anyone who receives you receives me, and anyone who receives me receives the Father who sent me. (Matthew 10:40, NLT)

“Now which of these three would you say was a neighbor to the man who was attacked by bandits?” Jesus asked. The man replied, “The one who showed him mercy.” Then Jesus said, “Yes, now go and do the same.” (Luke 10:36-37, NLT)
