Love starts here. As Pastor Chris pointed out this weekend, real love is more than just seeing a need, it’s about going and doing.
Describe a time when you encountered someone in need and did not help? What is the greatest obstacle to you meeting someone’s needs?
Jesus begins and ends this teaching with the command to “go and do.”
Primary Scripture: Luke 10:25-37
1. In verse 29, the lawyer asks “[…] who is my neighbor?”; likely, intending to limit who he should love. Why is it important that there are no limits to who God loves?
2. The help that the Samaritan provided had various costs. What are some of the things that helping others could cost you?
3. Read James 1:22-24 How can you avoid hearing God’s word but not doing it?
4. What is one thing this week you can go do to show love to someone around you?
Discovery Bible Method:
For deeper study, as an alternative to the questions above, read Luke 10:25-37 and use the Discovery Bible Method to consider Jesus’ command to “go and do.”
