There are many stories at the moment of people sharing kindness to those around them. I wonder what kind acts you have seen? I wonder if you have done anything kind for others?
Today, we are going to read a famous story Jesus told called The Parable of the Good Samaritan.
Let’s read the story together:
In the Good News Translation, we see the importance of kindness coming through:
And Jesus concluded, “In your opinion, which one of these three acted like a neighbour toward the man attacked by the robbers?” The teacher of the Law answered, “The one who was kind to him.” Jesus replied, “You go, then, and do the same.”
In the time and place that this parable was told, Samaritans were not popular; it was certainly not expected that this person, from that place, would be willing to help the beaten man lying helpless in the road!
