Go, and Do Thou Likewise

Luke 10:36-37, “Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves? And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.”

These verses come right after Jesus tells about the Good Samaritan. I’m sure many of you, if not all of you, know the story. A Jew was left on the side of the road half-dead. The priest and the Levite just passed by him, but the Samaritan did not. It’s amazing that the Samaritan even stopped much less helped him. The Samaritans and Jews did not get along. They wanted nothing to do with one another, but the Samaritan was a good neighbor. He helped someone around him that had a need. The man’s ethnicity and background did not matter to him. He saw a need that he could fill, and he filled it. Who can we be a good neighbor to? Sometimes, it is the little things that can brighten someone’s day–a smile, a hello, quick text message, etc. Let’s do our best to be a good “Samaritan” today.
