One day a man came to Jesus. He wanted to test Jesus. The man wanted to know if Jesus was really a good teacher or not. The man asked Jesus a question, “I have heard a lot about you. I want to know from you what to do so that I can live in heaven forever?”

“Have you read the Bible?” Jesus asked the person.

The man said, “Yes, I read the Bible.”

Jesus said, “So tell me what is written about it in the Bible? What do you think about it?”

“It is written in the Bible to love your God. Love God with your soul and with all your strength. Love your neighbors,” the man said.

The good Samaritan

Once upon a time, a Jew was passing through a road carrying his goods with him, then suddenly some thieves came to him and they beat the Jew very much and looted all his belongings. That Jew was badly wounded. He was so injured that he could not even get up.
After some time a Jewish priest passed by him. He was a religious man who worshipped God. That priest should have helped the wounded Jew lying there. But he left from there. After this, the priest’s assistant passed from there, who was a Jew. He also did not help the injured person.
Children, if we were there, we would have been sad to see that injured person and would have tried to help him in any way.
Then a Samaritan came who lived in Palestine. The Samaritans and Jews considered each other enemies. Their enmity was very old. But still, that good Samaritan supported the wounded Jew.
First of all, he bandaged the injured Jew’s wound and then took it in his donkey and took it from there. The Samaritan took him to a place where he could be safe. The Samaritan then arranged a man who will take care of the man and also paid for his treatment.
After the story was over, Jesus asked the person, “So now tell me who is your neighbour?”
Now in compulsion, the person had to take the name of Samaritan whom he considered his enemy.
“All the Samaritans and every person who is wounded, who is in sorrow, they are all our neighbours.” The man said to Jesus.
Now that person had understood what he had to do.
