We know the commandment, but how often do we avoid our Christian duty by asking Who is our neighbor? Can we justify stepping back from someone in need? Do we have to love everyone as ourselves? The Levite and Priest, men of God, certainly thought there was exception to this rule. They had studied the law of God, and yet ignored it, even when a man of there own country lies dying. It is a foreigner who takes care of the man. Go and do likewise- Christ commands it! There is no shortcut, no restriction, and no discrimination among people. You will be challenged in this walk! We were shown mercy by our God, therefore we give mercy. The Samaritan showed great kindness in his actions. Can we do the same?
