Won’t You Be My Neighbor? – Lk. 10:25-42

Do you remember the PBS kid’s show ‘Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood’? It featured the amicable Fred Rogers teaching kids all about the realities of life in a way they could understand. In the show’s opening song, Rogers asked his viewers, “Won’t you be my neighbor?”

From a Biblical standpoint, we know we are to love our neighbors. But that raises some questions. Who are our neighbors? Where do we find them? How do we love them?

It’s important that we answer these questions so that we can fulfill our duty to love God and love our neighbors as ourselves. It’s especially important at a time when the Church is being torn apart by politics and COVID. To that end, you may hear some things in this study that make you angry. Just remember that as a Bible teacher, I say what I say because I love God and I am trying to love my neighbor.
