This Week's Core Competency

Psalm 82:3-4 Give justice to the poor and the orphan; uphold the rights of the oppressed and the destitute. Rescue the poor and the helpless; deliver them from the grasp of evil people.

Scripture -- Luke 10:25-37

The Abrahamic Covenant established moral obligations among the Israelites. They were commanded to show concern for their neighbors. There was distinct racial strain between Jews and Samaritans. They did not frequently interact with one another; and in some cases, outright hostility and hatred existed. In the parable of the good Samaritan, Jesus makes it clear that love should not be limited by its object. Love is demonstrated in action, and love may be costly. Jesus challenged the lawyer not to talk the talk of being a Christian without walking the walk when he said, "Go and do likewise."
