Help Others

In our Bible verses today, Jesus told a story about a Jewish man. While this man was traveling, robbers took his clothes, beat him and “left him lying there on the ground almost dead” (verse 30b).
A Jewish priest saw the man, but he did not stop to help him. Then a Jewish Levite walked by. “He saw the hurt man, but he went around him…He just walked away” (verse 32b).
Then a man from Samaria saw the Jewish man who was hurt. Jews and Samaritans did not associate with each other, but this man stopped and helped the Jewish man. The Samaritan took care of the man’s wounds and took him to an inn where he could rest and recover.
In verse 37, Jesus tells us that we should be like the Samaritan man. He was the only person who stopped and helped someone who was in need. The Samaritan showed love and compassion to someone who was considered his enemy.
Look for opportunities today to show God’s love to others.
