The Parable of the Good Samaritan
"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and Love your neighbor as yourself." Luke 10, verse 27
A law expert asked of Jesus, "Who is my neighbor?" Jesus said to him. " A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when the man was robbed, beaten and left for dead. Several people including a priest passed by without helping, but a Samaritan stopped to help him, gave him aid, placed him onto his own donkey and took him to an inn paying for the care provided by the innkeeper. Returning days later to the inn, he paid the innkeeper for all the care provided." Jesus asked the law expert, "Which of these men was a neighbor to the fallen man?" The law expert replied, "The one who had mercy on him." Jesus replied, "Go and do likewise."
