“In Luke 10, when the scholar pressed Jesus to define who exactly this neighbor is that we’re commanded to love, Jesus didn’t give an inch. He gave a story. And it defines neighbor not as a particular who, but instead as a what, as in what you should do. The parable of the good Samaritan isn’t about identifying your neighbor; it’s about being a neighbor. In essence, it’s about being the kind of friend you wish you had.”

Did this blow your mind? Never seen it like that.

Also, why is it that we were taught that a good Samaritan is someone who does good deeds and charitable acts?

It was always about who we need to be. The kind of neighbour or friend we need to be.

And it starts with loving the person next to you or in front of you.

It looks like paying bus fare for the person next to you on the bus because you can see them turning out their bag for some change.

It looks like helping the weary mama in the bus, in the bank, at church or next door with her little one.

It looks like buying a loaf of bread at the shop and telling the shopkeeper to give it to the next guy who begs for food.

It looks like paying for the groceries of the out of pocket mama in front of you or behind you (send someone Jesus! 😝) Community, whether as Christians or not, is all about depending on each other. Maybe that's what Jesus was trying to get at, so that like in the book of Acts, everyone's needs are catered for.

So let's stop "just praying" and like the Samaritan or Jesus before healing someone, let your compassion move beyond thought or emotion. Compassion or sympathy is empty, wasted breath if it doesn't inspire your wallet, your hands and your time.
This is how they shall acknowledge our faith in God, when we love one another.

Be the neighbour. Be the friend. Be the one with the beating heart peeking through the sleeve looking for someone to love on today 😊

Do you need to be believing the best about your friends right now? There’s more than a few ways I’m walking this road right now, this doubting of people’s motives and intentions. I have to fight every. stinkin. DAY, most often multiple times a day, to choose to give them the benefit of the doubt and believe the best about them until it is proven otherwise. Sometimes it isn’t ever proven otherwise, is it? Things just go badly and you never find out why. And in those cases we have to just “let it go” and leave it up to God to sort out so it doesn’t develop roots and sow bitterness in our heart. It’s not easy, but it’s necessary and possible by His power alone. Philippians 4:8 ESV...”Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”

Are you struggling with believing the best in someone right now?

Thank you for listening to the #outoftheordinarypodcast today and sharing your “rainstorm” moments with @lisajobaker and I here on IG. The irony is that my life has been raining so many good gifts lately (the kind of gifts that stretch you and change you and make you uncomfortable in good and hard ways) that I’ve had less time to pause and take pictures. But I scrolled through my camera roll and found this.
.
And I remembered how grateful I am to be trying new creative things and tackling new projects with one of my oldest friends by my side. It’s the best mix of old and new, familiar and untried. 💗

Happy birthday Sussie @lisajobaker We are so proud to be called your sisters. You are beautiful. I hope you KNOW that. #sisterhood #family #rousfamily #rous #mysisterinlawisapublishedauthor #neverunfriended #neverunfriendedbook

This was some of my stash from Christmas of 2017 (yah, I know it’s August, but whatever). This picture says a lot about me. 1. I have a bit of a Noonday jewelry obsession. 2. I enjoy non-fiction books geared for Christian women. 3. I love gift cards for our local coffee house!! .
I’ve recently realized that I have like WAY too many necklaces. You know the stereotype that women have tons of shoes? I guess for me it’s jewelry. 😏 So, believe it or not, I’m trying to cut back. But...have you seen Noonday’s Pacifica necklace?! 😍😍😍
