The Parable of the Good Samaritan Featuring the art of Henry Martin
There was once a man traveling from Jerusalem to Jericho. On the way he was attacked by robbers.
They stripped him of his clothes and money, beat him, and left him half dead beside the road.
Luckily, a priest happened to be going down the same road, but when he saw the man lying there, he crossed to the other side of the road and passed him by.
Next a Temple assistant saw him lying there, but he also passed by on the other side.
Then a Samaritan came along, When he saw the man's condition, his heart went out to him.
Kneeling beside him, the Samaritan cleaned his wounds and bandaged them. Then he lifted him onto his donkey and took him to an inn, where he took care of him.
In the morning he took out two silver coins and gave them to the innkeeper. "Take good care of him “ he said. "If it costs any more, put it on my bill -- I'll pay you on my way back ."
Which of these three do you think did what Jesus would have done? The one who had mercy, of course. If you want to be like Jesus… Then do what Jesus did! Luke 10:30-37
