Let’s look at the parable
of the good Samaritan.
You got this guy, cruising down the road,
gets beat up and robbed and left to die
in a ditch.
A bunch of well-to-do, well-respected
from his own nation stroll by,
but they’ve got places to be,
especially if he’s dying
Cuz a dying man would make a “holy man”
Along comes a Samaritan,
who doesn’t have all the lingo and the rules,
he just knows someone is hurt,
doesn’t matter that the Jews and Samaritans
usually don’t get along,
he’s got a conscience, so he lends a hand,
he goes over what is expected of him,
cuz he’s just doing it to do it
There’s no expectation of reward.
And the “dead” man gets better and the Samaritan goes on his way
and who knows if they see each other again,
it’s not about anything more than doing the right thing.
We only have the moment.
Sure, we can brush it off with excuses and agendas,
but we all have a call to do something good,
each person’s call is different,
but it’s there, beckoning.
Keep your ear to the Earth
and your eyes to the skies
and you’ll find it.
Do good, my friends.
In all things, do good.
