God's Love In My Heart
Makes All the Difference
before Jesus gave us His now famous parable of the "good Samaritan," the
Golden Rule was known. Scholars say that a version of the Rule existed
even in pre-Bible times. So people have always known that
it is good to help a neighbor. Our hearts tells us so.
Once we see a neighbor in need, and we pause long enough to imagine how he must feel, the Rule may kick in. We might do something to alleviate the despair.
However, our own activities
may crowd in so much that we won't get to this point.
That's why it is important to walk "in the Spirit." Paul said those who do are the true people of God.
"Mercy triumphs . . ."
