The Good Samaritan

In Luke 10:25-37, Jesus then gave a parable to an expert of the law that came to test Him.  He asked Jesus how He could inherit eternal life.  Jesus told Him to follow the law and that he was to love the Lord with his whole heart.  Jesus then told him to love his neighbor as himself and he would inherit eternal life.  The man then tried to justify himself by asking who was his neighbor.  Jesus then told him the story of the good Samaritan.  A man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho and was robbed on the way.  He was left on the side of the road to die.  A priest came along saw him and walked right by Him.  A Levite came along and saw him but he actually went on the other side of the road to avoid him.  A Samaritan came along and saw him.  He bandaged his wounds and took him to a nearby Inn and he took care of the man.  Then he paid the Inn keeper to take care of the wounded man and when he came back through he would pay the Inn keeper the rest of the cost of healing the wounded man.  Jesus then asked the man who was the real neighbour was?  The scribe said the Samaritan.  Jesus then told the man to do the same.  This is a teaching that Christ is giving us today.  We are to reach out to our neighbors.  We are His hand extended.  Your promises today are:  Ps 25:18, 42:11, 119:25, Isaiah 57:19, John 14:27 and Rom 8:11.  Your Insightful Saying is:  When you guard your heart, you rarely have to guard your mouth.
