Advocating for the Other Oftentimes, our lives are so busy with our daily routines and commitments that we fail to see the great needs in our community. We fail to see the family next door, barely surviving, or the ex-convict wanting to turn his life around but can’t find the right opportunity. Or when we see a need, we feel we do not have the time or resources to take any action. In the parable of the Good Samaritan, Jesus reminds us to see people’s needs and to allow our compassion to move us into action. Join us this week as we learn how we can use our influence to be an advocate for others.
