I was not a good Samaritan, i have failed my duty but i can do so yet by being one soon. How many of you do agree? Where would we find another opportunity to do so? Or is it our duty to visit, places like - Prison cells, Hospitals, Old age homes, Orphan homes and so on. I would help the real real needy ones who cant pay back to me with a favor but a prayer for me.
How would you define needy? Different people need different things.
Its not so easy pennyofheaven .. but we can always ask the Holy Spirit to lead us to the neediest of all. When we pray & Ask of Him who is able to given beyond what we can imagine is our gift from Him. Do not worry of who you will go to. The Spirit will direct the person the Lord God wants to set the allotted help.
I agree and it is not necessarily limited to people who are homeless, hungry or poor. Whilst these might be the most obvious of all. I would not exclude those who appear to have everything they need. We all need love. Loving is the most valuable gift we can give anyone in my opinion.
Being a good Samaritan is always a work in progress. At least, it is for me. But there are times when we might be good Samaritan's and don't know it, when we help people without realizing we're helping them. Complimenting someone whose had a horrible day at work, praying for someone who really needs it which may have opened the door for the Holy Spirit to touch them. We never know sometimes who we touch. I think that's why as Christians, we are all called to love one another.
Thanks for your honesty Rina in noting how you might not have been a good Samaritan in your past, but you are a work in progress. I certainly stand with you, acknowledging this personal area under construction. I am slowly learning to give of myself with pure motives without consideration of the return. As we walk with Him, God does provide opportunities to do so.
Keep strong in your faith and pressing on in Christ!
Thanks so much and appreciate the working of the Holy Spirit in my Life .. Thanks Micheal Rivers
Thanks Micheal Rivers 1 .. appreciate your comment here .. Yes, indeed and when the Spirit of the Living God Brings His Great Knowledge and Wisdom then only we are able to do so with His Help.. God Bless you
I believe that if you 1. do things with good intentions, and 2. help someone (no matter how 'needy') by doing so, then you have acted as a good samaritan.
Thank you Kathleenkat ..appreciate you comment.. Yes indeed .. God would appreciate this as you said .. As believers of Jesus Christ we are and must in all circumstances be able to be a Good Samaritan not only by giving but sometimes a hearing to someone who needs to be heard as He/She alone is by her/himself in this world. They need our care n Love too and to share Jesus in their Lives. Thank you.
Give, expecting nothing in return. Give to those you do not know or love. Give time, money,m food, shelter, a shoulder to cry on. Help someone mow their grass. All these are helpful tot hose who cannot do things on their own or are broken in some way or another.
Thanks Paul K. Francis, appreciate your comments .. Yes, you are right, when you give expect nothing in return at all. And God does love his children when you do this in secret. Not like the Pharisees or the Sadducees whose works are of darkness yet while speaking of the true Light.
I think you can be a good sam by cheering someone up who is down and by simply being nice to everyone you encounter during your day. And when you can do more, thats great.
