This one story… that keeps hitting on my nerves, and it shows how people sometimes can be deceived by there own thoughts and inner self.
There was a man. he was traveling from Jerusalem to Jericho … when he was set upon by men of ill intent, they stripped the traveler of his clothes, they beat him, and they left him bleeding in the dirt.
A priest happened by… saw the traveler, but he moved to the other side of the road and continued on.
And then a Levite, a religious functionary, he … came to the place, saw the dying traveler, But he too moved to the other side of the road, passed him by.
But then came a man from Samaria, a Samaritan, a good man. He saw the traveler bleeding in the road and he stopped to aid him without thinking of the circumstance or the difficulty it might bring him. The Samaritan tended to the traveler’s wounds, applying oil and wine, and he carried him to an inn, gave him all the money he had for the owner to take care of the traveler, as the Samaritan, he… continued on his journey.
He did this simply because the traveler was his neighbor, he loved his city and all the people in it, its just that simple.
when i heard this story from a series called Daredevil (scene down below) , it made me think that maybe i think all the time that i am the Samaritan in that story, but we know from history that the best of men can be… deceived by their true nature.
I mean maybe I am not the Samaritan, or the Priest, or the Levite. maybe I am the ill intent… who set upon the traveler on a road that he should not have been on.
And to wake me up from this thought, i focus and try everyday to make sure that what i’m doing is really for the good of people not for the evil, i mean everyone of us at the end is fighting a battle you know nothing about, just be kind and nice and good all the time.
Be Good and Do Good.
