The Story of the Good Samaritan Part 2

Labels: , , .

Read Part 1.

"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 half dead. 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 him. 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." Luke 10:30-35

Attitudes of Men toward Fellow-men
1. Lawless (thieves)
What's mine is mine and what's thine is mine if I can get it.

2. Legalistic (priest and Levite)
What's mine is mine and what's thine is thine if you can keep it.


3. Lawful (inn keeper)
What's thine is thine and what's mine is thine if you can pay for it.

4. Liberal (good Samaritan)
What's thine is thine and what's mine is thine if you need it.
