One of my “friends” on FB shared a news feed about some guy who refused to help someone on the side of the road simply because they didn’t share the same political views as him. The guy said that God was telling them not to help the person. I’m sorry, but I really think that voice he heard and misinterpreted as God’s was really Satan’s. In John 10:27, Jesus said His sheep hear His voice and follow Him.
What happened to “love your neighbor as yourself” (Lev. 19:18)? And what happened to the Samaritan who showed mercy to his injured enemy (Luke 10:36-37)? Okay. I know that to expect light from darkness will leave us sorely disappointed, but shouldn’t we expect light from light? Shouldn’t we expect for Christians to act like Christ? The last time I read the bible Jesus didn’t turn His back on those seeking His help. The ones He did chide were the hypocrites in the church!
Don’t get me wrong. I have a difficult time doing for those who are rude to me or cut me off in traffic or who cheat the system so I have to pay more in taxes. But if someone needs help, I don’t care if they have a sticker on their car or a tattoo that says “I hate Christians”, I’m still going to help them! Do you know why? Because they are the ones who need the most help! They are the ones we were told to witness to!
Jesus said it best…”By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”…John 13:35
