My personal reflection relates to the culture that separates us and unites us – between our country and the country of El Salvador. There are many differences and diversities between us, but many that are the same.
The scripture reading of the Good Samaritan (Luke 20:39-37) was our devotional topic on Wednesday evening. We reflected upon how we as Americans can be Good Samaritans to our neighbors in El Salvador.
As I study and experience the differences I realize there are many similarities. We grow from the grace bestowed onto us as Christians. The need to love and show compassion. These are basic needs that are shared by the two cultures. My desire here and at home is to show more compassion, love and amazing grace. Simply less material needs and wants and more love.
Thank you, mucho gracias Lord Jesus!
