We love our neighbors when?

Never walk away from someone who deserves help; your hand is God’s hand for that person” (Proverbs 3:27a MSG).

We love our neighbors when… The Good Samaritan took action immediately. He didn’t just say, “I’m sorry for this guy. Isn’t it a shame? Isn’t that too bad?” He actually did something. We love our neighbors when we move quickly to help them.

This means you must be willing to be interrupted. Loving others doesn’t happen on your schedule; it happens on their schedule. Love is often inconvenient!

Did you know that God intentionally puts people — needy, hurting, hurtful people — in the path of your life? What often seems like a chance encounter is actually a God-engineered encounter. God knows you learn to love when you do things for others, knowing you won’t get anything in return.

You learn to love when helping someone else costs you in your plans, time, convenience, or money.

So lets recap:

1st. Never walk away
2nd. Take action, move quickly
3rd. God engineers encounter with hurting people
4th. You learn to love

So when are you going to love your neighbors?
