LOVE does no evil to the NEIGHBOR

09-10-2017We Celebrate Worship Resource, Vol. 42, No. 2
God watches over Israel by sending Ezekiel to warn the wicked when they turn away from God. This appointment is for the good of the entire community. Throughout the Bible, God raised up prophets to call the community to lives of justice and mercy and to turn away from selfishness and sin. Prophets have always focused on the needs of the poor, the weak, and the uncared for. Their spiritual descendants in our lifetime would include

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Jim Wallis confronting racism, Dorothy Day and Pope Francis addressing our indifference to the poor. In the Gospel, Jesus addresses his disciples about their responsibility to correct each other. We find a process of brotherly and sisterly correction outlined here. One of the spiritual works of mercy, “admonishing the sinner,” flows from this text. What might sound like giving up in the face of another's refusal to reform by “treat[ing] [that person] as you would a Gentile or a tax collector,” is not abandonment (Matthew 18:17). Remember, Jesus himself ate with sinners and tax collectors. Saint Paul sums it up succinctly: “Love does no evil to the neighbor” (Romans 13:10).

Has God ever worked through you to help heal a broken relationship? How?
