There is much to be learned in the Parable of the Good Samaritan. Take a moment to read this, for the lesson the Savior would have us learn is at the end.
But he...said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour?
And Jesus answering said, A certain
man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which
stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him
And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.
And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.
But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,
And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and
set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of
And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence,
and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and
whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.
Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves?
And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise" (Luke 10:29-37 https://www.lds.org/scriptures/nt/luke/10.30-37 ).
May we all serve others in whatever way we can. May we lift those who
are downtrodden, comfort those in need of comfort, and assist those who
most need the Love of the Savior.
