COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Here’s the full post of my friend, which I stole for the BOM: “In the gospel of Luke, a dude skilled in the day’s cultural/religious law approached Jesus to “test him” asking, basically, ‘What do I need to do to be considered right before God?” And Jesus turns it around and asks, ‘Well, what’s written in the law about this topic?’ Dude repeats the Golden Rule, which says, in part: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
Jesus says, ‘Looks like you got it. Do that and you’re cool’ But dude pushes for clarification: ‘Okay, but who exactly is my neighbor?’ Then, Jesus answers the very precise question by telling a story that most everyone on the planet now knows well – the parable of the Good Samaritan.
Story goes, in a nutshell: “Guy traveling was jumped by robbers who stripped and beat him and left him to die. Two dudes who were socially privileged (a priest and Levite) came along, noticed the guy, but peaced-out. Then, a Samaritan (not considered to fully belong to the dominant culture), noticed the guy lying there and decided to stop and interrupt what he was doing. The Samaritan then spent his time and his money making sure the guy was going to be alright.”
Then, this is the epiphany moment: Jesus didn’t ask, “Which of these three would you consider to be your neighbor?” Instead, he asked: “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the guy who nearly got waxed?” Dude responds: “The one who showed mercy.” (i.e., the Samaritan). Jesus: “Go and do likewise.”
In other words, Jesus was saying: “You’re asking the wrong question – ‘who is my neighbor?’ The question itself isses the point and implies a primary concern with exclusivity and tribalism. – instead, you should be asking, ‘What should I do to be a neighbor?’” So, instead of asking, “Whose life in particular should matter to me?”
Go and observe who is truly in need and show those persons mercy. A human in need.
A human who has been treated unjustly.
In order to be a neighbor, you should concern yourself with *that individual* or *those individuals* regardless of attributes such as color, beliefs, religion, political affiliation, occupation, or social standing.
Indeed, Jesus assigned no other attribute to the person other than that he was in need.
Look for needs and heal them – even and especially if you’re a Samaritan.
