A lawyer, who was a teacher of the law of Moses, posed a question to Jesus. "Teacher, what must I do to inherit everlasting life?
Jesus asked him, "How do you read what is written in the law?
The lawyer responded,
"You shall love the Lord your God
with all your heart,
with all your soul,
with all your strength
and with all your mind;
and you shall love your neighbor
as you love yourself
Jesus said, "You have answered correctly. Do this and you shall live.
The man being a lawyer was seeking to define the term "neighbor" and he said to Jesus, "And who is my neighbor?"
Jesus replied: "There once was a man traveling from Jerusalem to Jericho and on the way robbers
attacked him, took what they could use of his clothing, beat him up and left him for
dead. There was a priest who happened to be traveling the same road and when he saw the man,
he walked by on the other side of the road. Not much later, a Levite walking on the
same road saw the man who had been robbed and kept on going.
A Samaritan was traveling that way, and when he saw the man who had been robbed, his heart was filled with pity. ( Samaritans were considered unclean by the Jews ) He went to the man's aid, dressed his wounds, put him on his donkey and took him to an inn, where he took care of him. The next day he gave the innkeeper two silver coins and said, 'Take care of him and when I come back this way, I will pay you whatever else you spend on him.'"
And Jesus concluded, "In your opinion, which one of these three acted like a neighbor toward the man attacked by robbers?"
The lawyer answered, "The one who was kind to the man and treated him with compassion."
Jesus replied, "Go, then and do the same."

are good for support and prayer like Wisdom, Job, Psalms,
and Proverbs. They take you away from the story.

Have you ever wondered if there is a God? One who is responsible for the creation of the universe and all living things.
These are some of the stories of easy salvation.
No speaking in tongues, no being baptised with water,
just turn away from your sinful life, and believe that GOD The Father
sent his son JESUS to die on a cross and take all YOUR SINS away.
'For GOD loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not die but have eternal life.'
This is a beautiful prayer at anytime of the day or for those gathered at your table for a meal.
Lord, I have come to you for protection;
never let me be defeated!
Because you are righteous,
help me and rescue me,
Listen to me and save me!
There will be terrible times in the last days.
People will be lovers ....
"My children, when you come to serve
the Lord, prepare yourself for trials."
( A reading from “The Wisdom Of Sirach” )
