  1. One cannot argue with Jesus’ words on love and forgiveness, that’s for sure. The parable of the Good Samaritan, in effect the answer to “Who is my neighbor?” is another example of Jesus’ words that simply leaves you speechless when you contemplate the larger meaning. Indeed, love in this context has little to do with feeling. Love in this sense, “agape” if you will, is an action, and we choose how that verb will be played out…. Thanks Bro. TA
