This morning the staff of our small medical center met together as Pastor Moses opened his Bible to Luke chapter 10 and read, “On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. ‘Teacher,’ he asked, ‘what must I do to inherit eternal life?’ ‘What is written in the Law?’ replied Jesus. ‘How do you read it?’ The expert answered, ‘”Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind” and, “Love your neighbor as yourself.’” ‘You have answered correctly,’ Jesus replied. ‘Do this and you will live.’ But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, ‘And who is my neighbor?'” Pastor Moses motioned just outside the door, where some 100 people awaited their medical consultations. He then pointed to the hospital ward and maternity, where 50 more were already receiving life-saving attention. “Today,” declared Pastor Moses, “we enjoy the privilege of compassionate care for these, our neighbors.”
