Good Sam



My wife Anita and I watched a movie the other night called 'Good Sam'.

In this movie, someone was giving people $100,000 in cash by simply

dropping it anonymously at their front door in a bag.


One of the great side effects of this was the fact that the recipients

of the cash were blessing others out of their blessing ('Pay It

Forward' is a good movie that is all about this).


It is not a new concept, however...

In Luke 10:25-37, Jesus tells the parable of the Good Samaritan (many

of you will have read/heard this story many times, but I encourage you

to read it again with fresh eyes).


The key verse for me in this whole passage is the very last:

"Go and do likewise."

Wow! What an incredible challenge.


How good would it be if we all did this, *|FNAME|*?  What if we all loved people

to extreme lengths, with no other motive, but that Jesus first loved

us and calls us to love others?


When was the last time you did something 'good' for someone without

expecting something in return?


Why don't you try doing something good for someone this week?

Be a Good Sam!


Bless ya,
