Oh wow! What a rich chapter! I know I've read this chapter before but verses 21 - 23 never jumped at me before: At that same time Jesus was filled with the joy of the Holy Spirit.
Can you imagine? Jesus filled with the Joy of the Holy Spirit. Not sure why I like the visual, but I think too often I think of Jesus as being serious and here when I read "filled with the joy of the Holy Spirit" I imagine someone bubbling with joy. OK, so maybe I'm just weird.
The story of the Good Samaritan is such a great reminder of how we need to act toward those around us. Here in SoCal we have some may scam artist that just want a handout it's really hard to discern who needs help and who doesn't. In this parable it is obvious this man was injured and in need of help. I have gotten to the point where if someone ask for money for food I'll offer to buy them food, but I won't just give them cash.
Sorry if I'm babbling today...my thoughts are a little scattered.
