Which of these three, do you think, proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell among the robbers?” He said, “The one who showed him mercy.” And Jesus said to him, “You go, and do likewise.”
Luke 10:36-37 (NLT)
When asked, “Who is my neighbor?” Jesus answered with the story of the Good Samaritan. The story was about a man that was robbed and left for dead. Jesus told of a priest and a Levite, who because of their love for God and a fellow Jew, should have stopped and helped the wounded person. Instead they both decided to pass by on the other side of the road. He then said that a Samaritan, who was an enemy of the Jews, stopped and took care of the situation. Jesus then asked, “Which one of the people was a neighbor to the victim?” The answer was, “The one who showed him mercy.” Jesus then commanded us to “Go and do likewise.” The questions for us are, “Who will we pass by today?” And, “If they are wounded, will we show mercy?”
Father, You care for the wounded. You desire mercy. Help me not to pass by those hurting on my path. Help me to help others like Jesus did.
