We should be nice to the people around us, not just to the people who are like us.
One day, a Jewish man was walking along the road when he was attacked by some bad guys. The Jewish man was really hurt and was left to die. A priest walked by and noticed the guy but he just crossed to the other side of the street and kept going! Then, another guy who worked in the temple walked by and also did nothing. Wait, aren’t the religious people supposed to help others? This was the point Jesus was getting at in the story but there was one more piece Jesus added to grab people’s attention. A Samaritan walked by and decided to help the man. Finally, someone has compassion on the guy! But, here’s the kicker. Samaritans and Jews didn’t like each other. They weren’t even supposed to talk to each other. So, the fact that a Samaritan took the risk to help a Jew was a really big deal. Here was Jesus’ point. Followers of Jesus should love like Jesus loves. Jesus doesn’t play favorites or only help those he likes. He loves everyone and we should, too.
