Good day, this is Topher from Washington Church of Christ, bringing you a positive message minute.

I recently enjoyed a visit with our other local chaplains and the hospital patient experience officer regarding our Spiritual Care program.  I was encouraged by the group's desire to provide care upon request regardless of any divisive issues that arise in America today.  Regardless of your color, your age, your theology, party affiliation, or even how you do or don't like my haircut, as a member of this volunteer team, we'll try to provide the best care we can.  It all stems from the idea that you were created by God in His image (Genesis 1:27) and because of that special status, we believe you deserve the right to spiritual care upon your request.

As my dad says, "If you can help people, do it, cuz that's the right thing to do."

Jesus, shared much of this same idea through the parable of the good Samaritan in Luke 10:25-37 after he boiled down all laws to just two commands, love God and Love people (Luke 10:27-28).  The scripture says, "But a Samaritan, as he journeyed, came to where he was, and when he saw him, he had compassion." (Luke 10:33). Friends, focus on having compassion on someone today, whether they look like you or even whether or not they like your hair cut.  Have compassion and help whenever you are able.  You'll be glad you did.
