“Who is my neighbor?”
This question has stumped believers since the legal expert asked Jesus about it more than 2000 years ago. In hopes of justifying himself, the lawyer sought unambiguous instructions for inheriting eternal life. Jesus responded with the story of the Good Samaritan, demonstrating that loving our neighbors is defined more by our mercy than our area code.
By broadening our definition of neighbors, we are equipped to serve those in our cul-de-sacs, our communities, and even in the industries where we work. But Christians often fail to recognize the opportunity to be a part of God’s redemptive story through the work He has given us to do.
In The Call to Commerce: 6 Ways to Love Your Neighbor Through Business, Jeff Haanen explores practical ways to serve God and love our neighbors through the business industry–a sector not always associated with serving a greater good and a higher calling. Weaving together stories, Scripture, and interviews with business leaders, Jeff demonstrates six ways to demonstrate the same mercy Jesus talked about in his parable of the Good Samaritan. The e-book also includes discussion questions for use in small group settings.
