likewise.

I love Jesus. Jesus loved stories.

One of His best stories was about a guy who had been robbed and left for dead on the roadside. Two religious leaders walked by, noticed the body, and kept walking.

A third guy, with a reputation despised by his contemporary culture, stopped to help.

He changed a life.

Jesus asked, “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”

The religious leader listening answered, “The one who had mercy on him.”

Jesus answered, “Go and do likewise.”
