Wesley's Notes for Luke 10:37


10:37 And he said, He that showed mercy on him - He could not for shame say otherwise, though he thereby condemned himself and overthrew his own false notion of the neighbour to whom our love is due. Go and do thou in like manner - Let us go and do likewise, regarding every man as our neighbour who needs our assistance. Let us renounce that bigotry and party zeal which would contract our hearts into an insensibility for all the human race, but a small number whose sentiments and practices are so much our own, that our love to them is but self love reflected. With an honest openness of mind let us always remember that kindred between man and man, and cultivate that happy instinct whereby, in the original constitution of our nature, God has strongly bound us to each other.

    Too much of somethings without right decision,right direction,and right principle means making one right choice.Mary made the right decision to find herself at Jesus' feet and right principle to listen to Jesus as her only source of God's word.

    The summary of Luke 10 ,is making heaven.
  • Tonguino Alexis for verse 42
    "There is only one thing needed"...This was Jesus' response to Martha.That one thing needed is saving one's soul,in other words Salvation.Also,continually feeding the soul with its desired food,which is the word...The word of God. Now,why didn't Mary join Martha for the preparations? It's clear in verse 39,which says "Her sister,Mary,sat at the Lord's feet,listening to what He taught.This tells us that,Mary was more concerned about saving her soul and knowing the word of God,rather than running after worldly pleasures to satisfy the flesh,which stands for the preparations the bible talks about.Beloved,I encourage you to embrace the freely given salvation the Lord has brought to us.
