This is an audio sermon on the parable of the Good Samaritan.

Abstract

Do you look upon people as an inconvenience or an opportunity to serve? In your mind, are people obstacles to fulfilling your God-given purpose, or do people serve a central roll in God's purpose for your life? Depends on how your day is going, right? In the Parable of the Good Samaritan, Jesus offers penetrating insights into what it means to be someone's neighbor. He provides His own commentary on the second greatest commandment: "Love your neighbor as yourself." He describes two religious individuals who choose to ignore the needs of people on their way to accomplish their tasks. He then describes one individual who sets aside his infinitely-less significant tasks in order to serve another person and so fulfill this second greatest commandment. This week, which description will best fit you?
