"Which of these three, do you think, was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of the robbers?' He said, 'The one who showed him mercy.' Jesus said to him, 'Go and do likewise." Luke 10:36-37
The way to love your neighbor is show mercy, to clean and bind up the wounds of the one beaten by robbers. But when was the last time you saw someone beaten up on the side of the road? Are there other ways to love a neighbor?
Is our climate, the climate here in Hickman County, changing? Perhaps this is a question we can get our heads around. "Climate change" and "global warming" are ideas too big for my imagination. There is no way I can experience "global warming." Because, well, it is global.
But I can experience a higher average temperature HERE. My imagination can understand more extreme weather in this little world right around Fulton and Hickman Counties...
