One of the first steps in being released to love others and care for them, is to first learn to love ourselves. Jesus illustrated to an enquirer who our neighbour is, by relating a story often known as ‘The Good Samaritan’. The twist in the story is that the most unexpected and despised person was the very one that showed care to a stranger in desperate need of help. We see that caring is sometimes daring and can be costly. But that is what we are called to, because that is just what Jesus did.
