Have a heart

Our world is in turmoil: the ongoing crisis in the Middle East; the starvation of children living in extreme poverty; the human trafficking of millions of men, women and children caught up in modern day slavery; and the rate of domestic violence here in Australia, just to name a few.

Sometimes it seems easier to turn a blind eye and consider it all too much.  As Christians, however, we need to consider our role in helping people. Jesus’ parable of the Good Samaritan in Luke 10:25-37 challenges us to think about what the Christian faith should look like.

It raises multiple questions: “Should we help people indiscriminately?” “Should we be selective?” “Should we even help at all?” Andrew Prince explored these questions in his chapel sermon last Friday.
