The Parable of the Good Samaritan – Luke 10

2On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?” What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?” He answered, “‘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, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.”

“You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”

The rich young man didn’t see her as being his neighbor because he was blinded by the “ease” of his own happy world

He wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?” Thinking that Jesus wouldn’t include her in his world. Is she a part of your world?
