Pastor David Cay
As Christians we are called to be the best citizens- we are called to be great neighbors to others. We’re supposed to be the Good Samaritan in the famous parable told by Jesus. This is the Christian standard to show radical love to our neighbors even to the degree that it shocks people.
But research shows that Christians are better known for being hypocritical and judgmental – which makes us exactly the kinds of neighbors people don’t like or want. Our sermon today will address two mistakes that prevent us from being great neighbors.
These are the same two mistakes that the ancient Hebrews were prone to in our Bible story.
