1. One question that jumps at me in this passage, Luke 10:25-37, is – Who are the robbers of our days? How do we describe robbery in our day ? The original robber is Satan who leverages the sin nature to destroy other people's lives (John 10:10). #Love
2. There are armed robbers who rob physically with weapons and there are also economic and political robbers destroying people’s lives. (James 5:4) #Love
3. Whichever way the robbers rob, they leave people wounded and hurt. There are people in our world today who are wounded. #Love
4. The priest and the Levite in the story of The Good Samaritan avoided the man that was wounded by robbers, showing us that you can preach and serve in church without loving people. #Love
5. Love motivates us to assume responsibility for a situation. Responsibility means for you to do something about what you can do something about. The Samaritan took responsibility for the man wounded by robbers. #Love
6. In Mark 6:35-38, the Disciples of Jesus encouraged Him to send the people away so that they could go to the surrounding countryside and villages and buy themselves food. Just like we would prefer for everyone to sort themselves out. #Love
7. Jesus instructed that the disciples should rather get food for the people. They insisted they did not have enough money, like the excuse we give for not solving problems for others is that we do not have enough resources. #Love
8. Jesus asked for what they had. They said they had five loaves and two fish. He shifted their focus from what they did not have to what they had. He blessed the little. The moment they began to give that little out, a miracle of increase began. #Love
9. God will bless us with more if we will care for others with the little we have. He releases resources to those that assume responsibility for others. #Love
10. There is a culture of irresponsibility that is characteristic of people in parts of the world that are not developed: they do not bear responsibility for one another. The rich do not pay taxes but extract taxes from the poor. #Love
11. Bill Gates said recently that he has paid over $10billion in taxes and wishes he had paid more. Such taxes enable government to provide services like roads, airports, etc that serve the rich and the poor. His wife and he have given a lot also to charity. #Love
12. God asked Cain, “Where is Abel your brother?” He replied with a question; “Am I my brother’s keeper?” Lack of love can make us that irresponsible for others. Yet, we share a common humanity. #Love
13. The Good Samaritan spent time, money and effort to see the wounded man restored to health. He showed love. No wonder God allowed him to have money. If the priest was broke, it would not be a surprise. #Love
14. We may not be able to do much, but we can do something. Problems are love’s opportunity to demonstrate itself. Ultimately, love solves problems for others. #Love
15. As you take responsibility for others and solve problems for them with the little you have or can do, Heaven will intervene. You will get resources and promotion you did not get before, and God will preserve you in Jesus’ name. #Love
