Over on his Covenant of Love blog, Derek Ouellette has a post responding to a CT article on a movement called the “new” holiness, or the “new radicals.” Its a good read and a good reminder that it is the things we do that incur holiness but who we are; not how radical we are or can get but that just even doing the little things can mean a lot. But the following was at the end of the article and I wanted to share it. It’s really good.
The Good Samaritan wasn’t a good neighbor because he moved to a poor part of town or put a pile of trash in his living room. He came across the helpless victim ‘as he traveled.’ We begin to fulfill the command not when we do something radical, extreme, over the top, not when we’re really spiritual or really committed or really faithful, but when in the daily ebb and flow of life, in our corporate jobs, in our middle-class neighborhoods, on our trips to Yellowstone and Disney World – and yes, even short-term mission trips – we stop to help those whom we meet in everyday life, reaching out in quiet, practical, and loving ways.
