Jesus is the vine, I am the branch. I abide in Him, He abides in me, I bring forth much fruit. Without Him I can do nothing.

And Who Is My Neighbor? & The Good Samaritan©


And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?

He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou?

And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbor as thyself.

And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.

But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbor?

And Jesus answering said, A certain  man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.

And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.

And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.

But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,

And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.

And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.

Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves?

And he said, He that showed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise. 

Luke 10:25 -37 KJV (Bold & Some Italic Emphasis Added)

A biblical illustration, teaching, and instruction by Jesus that I have heard and have read before of the Good Samaritan. In doing an assignment for my LEGL 215 class, I came across in my textbook, Good Samaritan Statutes, different in it’s application, however, it takes on it’s name after the actions of the certain Samaritan that Jesus talks about in this biblical teaching. 

Inspired, having a desire to read and look further in to the teaching, I share it with you on today. 

One thing amongst others, that caught my attention, it also made me laugh to myself, is that a lawyer asked Jesus this question. Lol!(Laugh Out Loud) 🙂 Enjoy!

Do You Call Everyone You Know ( Know Of) A Friend?


Do you call everyone you know (know of) a friend? Do you know the difference between an acquaintance, associate, and friend?

How often have we said out of acknowledging that we know someone, “that’s my friend.” when really we should say, “I know who that person is, or I’ve met that person before, or we went to the same school, etc., Friend has a much deeper meaning:

friend
frend/

noun
plural noun: friends; plural noun:

1. a person whom one knows and with whom one has a bond of mutual affection, typically exclusive of sexual or family relations. – Google Web Dictionary

Keywords: has a “bond” of “mutual” “affection”.

That means friends have a “bond” of “mutual” “affection”. Friends hold in common;have affection for each other;toward each other.

How about acquaintance?

ac·quaint·ance
əˈkwāntəns/

noun

2. a person one knows slightly, but who is not a close friend.
“a wide circle of friends and acquaintances”
synonyms: contact, associate, ally, connection, colleague
“a business acquaintance –  Google Web Dictionary

Lastly, associate:

as·so·ci·ate

noun
əˈsōSHēət/

1. a partner or colleague in business or at work.
“he arranged for a close associate to take control of the institute”
synonyms: partner, colleague, coworker, workmate, comrade, ally, affiliate, confederate; More

1. a person with limited or subordinate membership in an organization.

adjective
əˈsōSHēət/

1. joined or connected with an organization or business.
“an associate company”

In reality people mistakenly use recognition or acknowledging of a person as the criteria of calling them “friend” or “my friend”.  When really what should be stated is, they are an acquaintance or an associate. Or someone I met at…., or just acknowledge how you really know the person.

That’s something worth considering!
