Weekly Update 2/23/21

This Sunday, we looked at “Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.” In America today we are facing a lot of divisiveness. It often feels like we are in a school of piranhas, waiting for people who we disagree with to be devoured. We were reminded that to seek justice without mercy makes the oppressed become the oppressor and the cycle of violence continues.

We looked at the story of the Good Samaritan found in Luke 10. In this shocking story the person that stops and help the man in need is the hated Samaritan, but in his sacrifice we see that “our neighbors” are not just the people that live near us or look like us but rather all people. We were challenged to follow the example of the Samaritan and love all people, bestowing mercy, just as Christ has done for us.
