May 18 – A Good Samaritan

Last month our daughter-in-law, May, rolled her car. A pickup truck following her closely, left the scene of the accident without stopping.. For a while she was unable to get out of her car, which landed on the driver’s side.. But a good man living across the road from where the accident occurred, saw it, helped her out of the car and called 911. An ambulance was soon on the way, and she received appropriate medical care. The event reminds one of the parable of the good Samaritan in the Bible, where a man was injured, and left on the side of a road. Two men passed him by. without helping. But another man, known as the good Samaritan, found him, had compassion and tended to his wounds. Those men who helped another person, both then and now, in that way are like our Lord. On one occasion, Jesus came upon some people in trouble. When He saw them, He was “moved with compassion for them because they were weary and scattered like sheep having no shepherd. “ If you are in trouble today, reach out to the Saviour. He’ll help you!
