Why You’re Here
The parable of the good Samaritan is probably the best known of all Jesus’ parables. Jesus told it because he knew what was at stake in the lawyer’s questions. Then and now, it is the question of whether we will use the God-given revelation of love and grace as a way of boosting our own sense of justifying ourselves, or whether we will see it as a call and challenge to extend that love and grace to the whole world. So why are you and I here?
