2023 Day 298 – Luke 10

When Jesus was asked which was the greatest commandment, He gave the answer and also gave the second greatest commandment.  “And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’  The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:30-31)  For Him to share with them the next commandment as well must mean that it is important for us all to follow.  And who is my neighbor?  That same question was asked to Jesus by a lawyer.  Jesus told him the story we all know of the Good Samaritan.  At the end of the story, Jesus used a question back to the lawyer.  “Which of these three, do you think, proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell among the robbers?”  He said, “The one who showed him mercy.” And Jesus said to him, “You go, and do likewise.” (Luke 10:36-37)  To follow Jesus’ command, we also should be willing to “go, and do likewise.”
