The parable Jesus tells about loving our neighbor is often called, “The Good Samaritan.” Yet, the main character seems to really be the man broken, beaten, and left for dead in the ditch. Two people pass him by offering no help. Maybe too busy. Then a despised person comes and helps. For the man in the ditch, the character of the three who came along the road mattered not. His neighbor, the one who loved, was the one who helped. We may pass by the suffering people of the world for many reasons. The good news is that God never passes us by. The good news is that tending the one in need is, in fact, eternal life.
