Good Samaritan Day

The parable of the good Samaritan tells of a man who gets hurt along his journey. While there are three men that are traveling the same path two of them walk by. As the third man is walking down the path on his journey the injured man realizes that he is a Samaritan. Since the injured man himself be a Jew he feels at once that the third man will pass him up as well. Imagine his surprise as the Samaritan stops and helps the man takes him to the inn, pays for his stay and medical care.

How many times have we took a moment to think about who may or may not help us if we were in need. It may just surprise us what friend will be there and who will pass us up. That is what Good Samaritan Day is about.

Now days in America there is such a thing as the Good Samaritan Law. These laws are designed to protect those who choose to help others who are injured or ill. The feeling is that bystanders will be more willing to help without the fear of being fined, sued, or prosecuted for unintentional injury or wrongful death if a mistake is made. These laws vary from area to area.

What is it that you do when you see trouble. As little as calling 911 or as much as helping someone who needs help all counts and good for you for helping out

    1. I so agree without the law there may be some that do nothing even though they want to for fear of being sued

  2. Isn't it Good Samaritan Day EVERY day?

  3. May we all look out for our fellow neighbors. It is the greatest commandment to love one another and our neighbors, this includes our actual neighbors.
