"And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.
And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee (Luke 10:30-35).
As representatives; ambassadors, of Christ, we are supposed to be an unselfish people. When we come across someone who has fallen on hard times, for whatever the reason: a victim of loss, theft, poverty, etc., we ought to help such a one. It is the human nature to be selfish. However, as born again believers we have a new nature given to us through Christ blood shed on the Cross. We ought to show love to our neighbors. "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these (Mark 12:30-31). God did not save us to be bystanders, spectators, or the like, "But [to] be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves (James 1:22).
Be The Good Samaritan
