Day 7: Help

 

Today's message

"The Good Samaritan" is one of the most popular parables from the Bible. It's also an expression we use whenever we see someone do a good deed for someone less fortunate than themself. It's easy to focus on the main characters i.e. the man in need, the Jewish priest and the Levite who both passed by and of course the Good Samaritan! However there's another really important person in this story - God! God showed up in what was a hopeless situation. God's love flowed through the heart of the Good Samaritan and gave him the determination to help someone in need. Who can you help as you let the love of God flow through you today?
