War Cry Online

Who is My Neighbor?

God instructs us, in Matthew, that the two greatest commandments are alike. We must love God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength and that we must love our neighbors as ourselves. In the parable of the good Samaritan, Jesus points out that the Samaritan’s neighbor was he who showed mercy on him.  We were then commanded to go and do likewise.

In this issue of War Cry Online we read about:
  • A miracle on a Brooklyn subway. We read how a commuter reached out to his neighbor, and facilitated a life-changing miracle.
  • The Salvation Army’s positional statement on the separation of families at the US border.  We are reminded that we must treat each other with love and compassion, as a neighbor. A Prayer for Love. We are moved by the love that can blossom when we partner with God in prayer and serve our neighbors as ourselves.
  • Burkina Faso becomes the 130th country served by The Salvation Army. We rejoice as we learn that The Salvation Army will now be recognized in Burkina Faso and that we may serve our neighbors there.

As you read this issue, may you have a deeper desire to love your neighbor as yourself and to reach further to serve those around you.  May you be inspired by the good Samaritan who showed mercy on a fellow human being, and go and do likewise.
