Good Samaritan / Rich Young Ruler

24 06 2007

It is much easier to maintain a religious system than it is to improve the neighborhood.

Wiersbe, W. W. 1996, c1989. The Bible exposition commentary. “An exposition of the New Testament comprising the entire ‘BE’ series”–Jkt. Victor Books: Wheaton, Ill.

I was studding for a message at camp last week and came across this point when I was reading about the the rich young ruler in Mark 10, and the good Samaritan in Luke 10. Kind of hits close to home for those of us that work for the church and have made it a profession reciting the appropriate religious speech. Are we willing to actually do what Jesus is calling for or simply talk?
