Wednesday's Word

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

I've developed an accidental theme here this week, so I'm just going to go with it:


You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor. You shall not covet your neighbor's house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his manservant or his maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor. Exodus 20:16-17 (Numbers 9 and 10 of the Ten Commandments)

Do not forsake your friend and the friend of your father, and do not go to your brother's house when disaster strikes you - better a neighbor nearby than a brother far away. Proverbs 27:10

He answered: Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and love your neighbor as yourself. "You have answered correctly," Jesus replied. "Do this and you will live." But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, "And who is my neighbor?" In reply Jesus said (the parable of the Good Samaritan). . . Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers? The expert in the law replied, "The one who had mercy on him." Jesus told him, "Go and do likewise." Luke 10:27-30, 36-37

  1. I remember teaching the word "neighborly" in 3rd grade one year and how sweet it was to hear the kids talk about offering friendship to one and all and being merciful fellow inhabitants of the earth. Thank you for these verses today, especialy those last ones.
