How many of us have had the opportunity to help someone, but chose not to due to being either selfish or thought to ourself that we just didn’t have the time?
Jesus told of a certain man who fell among thieves. As he lay near dying, a priest came by and when he say the man decided to passed on the other side to avoid lending a helping hand. Likewise, a Levite saw the man and did as the priest and passed on the other side. Story goes on to tell that a Samaritan came and when he saw the man, he had compassion and rescued the man
This parable was told because like the people in whom Jesus was referring to then, someone of us are doing exactly as the priest and Levite. Pretending as if we don’t see and refusing to help others when we have the means
Jesus is a giving Savior and we must pattern ourselves like Him
When we give of ourselves freely without remorse or grudging, we release the Lord to reign down blessings in our name. Being stingy only brings on heartache whether it be financially, emotional or physical
Let’s strive to be Good Samaritans as much as we can in Jesus name!
