DAILY VERSE
Jesus replied with a story: “A Jewish man was traveling from Jerusalem down to Jericho, and he was attacked by bandits. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him up, and left him half dead beside the road. “By chance a priest came along. But when he saw the man lying there, he crossed to the other side of the road and passed him by.
Luke 10:30-31
 
DEVOTION
How many times have you walked by, averted your eyes from, or crossed the street to avoid coming in contact with someone less fortunate? The New Testament is full of stories about Jesus Christ. He sought out the poor, the prostitutes, the adulterers, the tax collectors, people who were considered to be lower than everyone else. Jesus says that by caring for these people we are caring for him. We should likewise seek them out, reflecting the Spirit within us.
