Go and Do
Just then a lawyer stood up to test Jesus. "Teacher,"
he said, "what must I do to inherit eternal life?"
He said to him, "What is written in the law?
What do you read there?"
He answered, "You shall love the Lord your
God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all
your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself."
And he said to him, "You have given the right
answer; do this, and you will live."
But wanting to justify himself, he asked Jesus,
"And who is my neighbor?"
Jesus replied, "A man was going down from Jerusalem
to Jericho, and fell into the hands of robbers, who stripped him,
beat him, and went away, leaving him half dead. Now by chance
a priest was going down that road; and when he saw him, he passed
by on the other side. So likewise a Levite, when he came to the
place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan
while traveling came near him; and when he saw him, he was moved
with pity. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, having poured
oil and wine on them. Then he put him on his own animal, brought
him to an inn, and took care of him. The next day he took out
two denarii, gave them to the innkeeper, and said, 'Take care
of him; and when I come back, I will repay you whatever more you
spend.' Which of these three, do you think, was a neighbor to
the man who fell into the hands of the robbers?"
He said, "The one who showed him mercy."
Jesus said to him, "Go and do likewise."

If we look at life legally, we're liable to spend it
in court rather than living it.
It's hard to do, but we need to
make the world a better place, now - neighbor!
