"...he said to Jesus, 'And who is my neighbor?'" Luke 10:29
"Which one of these three, in your opinion, was neighbor to the robber's victim?" Luke 10:36
There are two key questions in today's Gospel and they are kind of the same..."Who is my/the neighbor?"  Indeed, we are faced with the same exact questions today, this October Monday.  Who is our neighbor this day? Is it a client, student, coworker, stranger, landlord? Is it a person with whom we struggle? Is it a person we enjoy? I kind of think the answer is the most difficult person we encounter today is our neighbor.  I also think the answer could be any person who needs us, even in the slightest way, today is our neighbor. So, we can ask the question of the scholar this morning, "Who is my neighbor?"  And, at the end of the day, as we are beginning to take our rest, we can ask the question of Jesus, "Who was the neighbor?"  Hopefully, our answer, as we snuggle into our beds, will be "WE were." Jesus, help us live our Monday as true neighbors to each other. Love, heidi
