Who is My Neighbor?
What if the answer was affected by your response to the question?
Listen to the audio version of this post HERE (Note: still adjusting audio quality).
Luke 10:29 (NLT)
The man wanted to justify his actions, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”
What if the “neighbor” referenced in the question ended up with a neighboring mansion in Heaven? What if their eligibility for that mansion (their eternal fate) was determined by your actions and response toward them in how you answered the subject question? Who would you consider to be your “neighbor” then? Who would Jesus want you to consider a “neighbor”?
