There was a believer in Joppa named Tabitha (which in Greek is Dorcas). She was always doing kind things for others and helping the poor. Acts 9:36
“Sometimes we get the impression that if we go across the ocean, it’s more noble than going across the street. And I think all of Heaven is leaning over the rails hoping we’ll go across the room or across the street to someone who hasn’t been that easy to love, and that we’ll express love without agenda because we want to grow in the faith.” Bob Goﬀ.
I equally love and loathe this quote. It is so true and yet sometimes so diﬃcult. Sometimes loving the people nearest to us is the hardest thing to do and yet Jesus tells us the story of the Good Samaritan and expects us to go and do the same.
