Love over legalism
"Which of these three, in your opinion, was neighbor to the robbers' victim?"
He answered, "The one who treated him with mercy."
Jesus said to him, "Go and do likewise."
Who today will become, through the grace of His love, your neighbor that, in law, has no more claim upon you than that of a stranger?
"Go and do likewise."
Scriptures for today.
