Be Like The Samaritan

In Luke 10:30-35, we read of a man who was attacked, robbed and left in a frail position. Jesus explained that a priest passed him, so did the Levite, who were both held in high esteem in society but a Samaritan, who’s the last person expected to help, stopped. This Samaritan showed mercy, placed the man on his donkey, took him to an Inn and covered the expenses.
Jesus explained that this is the way we ought to treat our neighbors. We are to be the Samaritan, being merciful and showing compassion. As we meet and interact with persons today, may God present opportunities for us to be the good Samaritan and may we respond in obedience.
