The serious problem of the “good” Samaritan

 

The parable of the Samaritan in Luke 10 isn’t about figuring out who is “qualified” to help. It is about a radical love for God and others that is so deep, the first inclination is to help.

It’s risky. It’s dangerous. It puts us in hard situations.

And through all of it we find the presence and love of God.

That “go and do likewise” part is harder than we can imagine.
