Many of us have watched a person go through a major life changing medical event. As a result of that event they may have died. At time of death you may have said to yourself, what could I had done to make this person’s life better? Why didn’t I spend more time with him or her? If I could do somethings over again I would do this or that different.
I must ask you, why aren’t we more proactive? Let’s look at our own lives. Has there been a time when you have been in need of some thing? It may have been money, employment, groceries or just someone to talk to. And those that you considered to be friends were not there for you. We have all hit rock bottom either socially, physically, emotionally or financially and have felt like if just a few people could lend a helping hand, my life would turn in a new direction. Wouldn’t you agree? Many of us follow a foundation that is based upon the Word of God. In the Bible, Luke 10:31-37, is a wonderful illustration of would I just described above.
31 And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.
32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side
33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,
34 And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.
35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.
36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves?
37 And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.
Let’s be honest with ourselves, which one are you? I asked this question this way because I believe, that the way you were prior to reading this text, that you may have received deeper insight of who God wants you to become. When was the last time that you actively supported a life changing event and you still support that activity with strong conviction today? Maybe you’re an advocate for American Cancer Society, American Diabetes Society or the American Heart Association, just to name a few. Or you might contribute time and financial resources to help a family member or a stranger.
