Remember the Good Samaritan? One of the timeless stories about overcoming racial differences, helping those in need and sacrificing one’s own for a neighbor. A parable that exemplifies the ethics of Jesus Christ himself.
To this day, we do not travel with a donkey nor do we walk on long roads to reach our destination. (Though there are still undeniably undeveloped areas in the world who have and do those). The trouble we face is when getting flat tires, overheating and all problems included owning a car. Of course there would still be good Samaritans out there disguised as roadside assistance towers and mechanics. Naturally, it’s not free, we have to pay for the service, far from the Good Samaritan in the story who even paid for the Jew’s stay in an inn. 🙂
