How many of us would call ourselves a Good Samaritan? What does being a good Samaritan mean? Jesus told a parable of a man who was headed to Jerusalem when robber's grabbed him, stripped him, beat him, and left him for dead. Some people just passed the injured man but one man stopped to help him-the good Samaritan. Jesus replied and said, "A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among robbers, and they stripped him and beat him, and went away leaving him half dead. Luke 10:3 The Good Samaritan-Parables Jesus Christ told How many of us would call ourselves a Good Samaritan? Jesus told a parable of a man who was headed to Jerusalem when robber's grabbed him, stripped him, beat him, and left him for dead. Some people just passed the injured man but one man stopped to help him. Jesus replied and said, "A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among robbers, and they stripped him and beat him, and went away leaving him half dead. Luke 10:30 A priest and a Levite passed by but did not help the injured man A priest just happened to be going down the same road, saw the man, and went to the other side of the road-ignoring the man.
And by chance a priest was going down on that road, and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. Luke 10:31
A Levite saw the man and also passed by on the other side of the road.
Likewise a Levite also, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the otherside. Luke 10:32
The Good Samaritan went out of his way to help the injured man One man who was traveling by made a difference. A Samaritan saw the man, felt compassion for him, treated and bandaged his wounds and then put him on his own beast and brought him to an inn and took care of him. The very next day the good Samaritan paid the innkeeper to take care of the man.
But a Samaritan, who was on a journey, came upon him; and when he saw him, he felt compassion, Luke 10:33
and came to him and bandaged up his wounds, pouring oil and wine on them; and he put him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn and took care of him. Luke 10:34
The next day the Samaritan paid the innkeeper to take care of him. "On the next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper and said, 'Take care of him; andwhatever more you spend, when I return I will repay you.: Luke 10:35 Jesus asks which of the men proved to be a neighbor "Which of these three do you think proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell into the robbers' hands?" Luke 10:36 And he said, "The one who showed mercy toward him." Then Jesus said to him, "Go and do the same." Luke 10:37 Ask yourself these Questions
Do You Love the Lord?
Do You Love other's enough to help them in their time of need?
Are you a Good Samaritan?
If you answered no to any of these questions then it is time to rethink how you can adjust your thinking to God's way of thinking and become a good Samaritan in your life today. Jesus gave us an example to follow-in the parable of the Good Samaritan he specifically tells us to "Go and do the same" which means if we see someone hurt or in need we should do all we can to help them.
