What happens when we avoid people who need our help? We see them as nuisances rather than as our brothers and sisters. We judge them unworthy of our time rather than recognize their value as children of God. We treat them as strangers rather than as neighbors. Ultimately, we fail to see the face of Christ in them.
All of us would like to think that we are good and decent people. We would like to think that our family and friends can rely on us when they are in a bind. However, the real test of our love is the way we treat strangers, especially those who are different than us. The real test of our love is our willingness to give when it is risky to do so.
