All my life, when I have heard the parable of the Good Samaritan preached, the danger of being robbed also or maybe being killed was mentioned, but the fact that the kind man didn’t let this stop him from helping a dying man was emphasized. Love is this: putting the needs of others above your own needs or safety. And God, who is the Owner of Death and Life and who loves us with this very love, will work it out.
Even though not every good Samaritan is going to find a good hurt person to help, our mission in life is to love as our God loves us, and He gives us the best life insurance in the universe: everlasting life, no matter what happens, no matter what!
