The Parable of the Good Samaritan
<br>

The Parable of the Good Samaritan can be found in the Bible in Luke 10:25-42. In this parable, Jesus tells the story of a good Samaritan. Let me tell you a story. There was a time when an expert in the Old Testament stood up to test Jesus. "Teacher, he asked, what must I do to inherit eternal life?" "What is written in the law?" Jesus replied. "How do you read it?" He answered, "Love the Lord your God with all of your heart, and with all of your soul, and with all of your strength, and with all of your mind, and love your neighbor as yourself." "That is correct," Jesus replied. "Do this, and you will live." But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, "And who is my neighbor?" Jesus replied with this story. "There was a man going down from Jerusalem to Jericho when he fell into the hands of robbers. They beat him, stripped him of his clothes, and went away leaving him half dead. A priest happened to be going down the same road. He saw the man, and passed by on the other side. So, too, a Levite came to where the man was, saw him and passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came to where the man was and when he saw him, he took pity on him. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, poured on oil and wine he put the man on his own donkey, took him to an inn, and took care of him. The next day he took out two silver coins and gave them to the innkeeper. 'Look after him,' he said. and when I return I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.' "Which of these three was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?" The expert in law said, "The one who had mercy on him." Jesus told him, "Go and do likewise." (Paraphrase)

This is such a blessing to me. It sounds like such simple and obvious advice, but we find it hard to do.
