Integrity Moments - Sept. 27, 2012

It was late afternoon and Matt was running late to a scheduled appointment when he saw a mother struggling with a flat tire.  As he drove past, he reminded himself of all the reasons he couldn’t afford to stop and assist the stranded motorist. 

But the Lord convicted Matt to put his business on hold and help someone in need.  In Luke 10 Jesus told the Good Samaritan story and said, “But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him.”

Jesus’ profound question was “Who are our neighbors?”  Regardless of who they are in our life, when we love our neighbors in our businesses and personal lives, we can experience a fulfillment that’s never obtained by serving only ourselves.

Today’s “Integrity Moment” was adapted with permission from the writings of Matt Cline.
