In Luke 10:30, we begin to read the parable of the Good Samaritan. As followers of Christ, we pray that we would live our faith and be a “Good Samaritan” to those in need. In addition, all of us at one time or another, can identify with the man lying on the side of the road in need of care. God sends Good Samaritans to give us care; we should not reject His gift! Be open to receiving care yourself should the need arise. It is not a sign of weakness to ask for help when you encounter a difficult time. God created us not only to help others, but also to receive help when we need it. Keep Stephen Ministry open as on option for yourself should you encounter difficulties in the future. To learn if the one-on-one confidential ministry might be right for you or a friend, please call Pastor Reichmann at 377-6610 for more information.
