A minister on his way to his car after Bible Study saw the woman lying on the ground, side-eyed her, could hear her moaning and was relieved she was not dead.
They also saw the elderly woman lying on the ground, and without saying a word to one another, crossed to the other side of the street to avoid walking directly past the woman.
The man left his name and number with the family members and told them he would take care of the woman’s hospital bill over and above what Medicare Part A & B and any other supplemental insurance doesn’t pay.
In the parable of the Good Samaritan, Jesus asked the young man, who was more neighborly?
We need people like the Good Samaritan in today’s parable who will show love and concern for others, even the stranger, not just in words, but also in action.
