In Distress

A stranger runs up to your door and in obvious panic, bleeding, with clothes dirty, tattered, no shoes, unshaven, hair a mess,begging for help…What do you do? Do you get your AK-47? Or do you chose your pistola? Do you slam the door in his face? Do you call the police on them or for them?

What would Jesus do?

30 In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. 31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. 32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. 34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him.35 The next day he took out two denarii[e] and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’ — Luke 10:30–35 NIV
