We learned that our “neighbor” is not just the people who are like us. For Christians, the definition of neighbor extends to anyone we come across in need. The benefits of eternal life are extended to those who show compassion to help others regardless of their biases or prejudices. The benefits of eternal life belong to us if we choose obedience to the great commandment of love!
