In this parable, Jesus tells us to help our neighbors – those who are in need. The problem is determining what are legitimate needs. What is the greatest need? Jesus himself is really the “good Samaritan” who saw our need and was willing to lay down his life for us. Everything we do for others is motivated by what Jesus has done for us.
James 2:14-17 (Faith and Works)
Luke 10:25-37 (Parable of the Good Samaritan)
