SCRIPTURE

BIG IDEA

Serving others is critical to your spiritual growth.

OUTLINE

  1. The main characters of the story:
    • A man
    • Robber
    • Priest
    • Levite
    • A Samaritan
  2. Your spiritual journey will cost you something.
    • Time
    • Money
    • Emotional Energy
  3. Love your neighbor now by serving them.
    • We can’t have impact apart from contact.
    • Start locally.
  4. My neighbor is anyone God brings across my path.

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

  1. Who has most affected your spiritual journey? How so?
  2. Read Leviticus 19:18, 33-34 out loud. What stands out to you?
  3. Do you tend to believe that getting involved with someone who needs help is an inconvenience or an opportunity? What makes you lean this way?
  4. What is the biggest obstacle that keeps you from getting involved in others‘ lives?
  5. Jesus‘ description of who our neighbor is is convicting. Discuss who is on your path that may need you to pay attention to them.

NEXT STEP

  • I will ask God to help me be more aware of those who are in the “ditch“ around me.
