In Luke 10:30-37, Jesus tells the parable of the Good Samaritan.
In this parable, a man is traveling from Jerusalem to Jericho when he is mugged and left for dead in an alley. Two people pass by on either side but do not bother to help him—the priest and Levite. Finally, a Samaritan stops and takes care of the man’s wounds, puts him on his donkey, and pays for a place for him to stay.
From this parable, we can see that God is encouraging us to look around us, listen to our conscience, and learn from each other. He wants us to show compassion towards one another, to help those in need. He wants us to provide hope and comfort to those who find themselves in desperate situations.
We can change our lives by being more aware of the opportunities around us that allow us to show compassion towards others. Look for people who are alone or feel isolated, listen with an open heart and mind, and learn about their lives and what motivates them. Look for those who are hurting or in need, listen to their stories, and learn how we can help.
To remain changed, practice being more aware of others' needs. Look around, listen intently, and learn from others' experiences. Show empathy towards all people—those who think like us and those who don't. Look for opportunities to help, listen with an open heart, and learn the needs of others.
In summary, God wants us to be empathetic toward those who need our assistance. He encourages us to look around, listen carefully, and learn from each other’s experiences. By doing this, we can provide hope and comfort to those in need and transform our lives for the better.
Let us take this lesson from the Good Samaritan and practice it in our everyday lives, so that we may continue to be changed, providing hope, love, and compassion to a world that needs it.
