Who is Greater?

Brand new Bike

Darkest night

Waiting for

a green light

Standing there

Earbuds in

Knows not

It begins

fists beating

arms pulling

things gone

head spinning

Broken body

Left for dead

No one knows

Nothing said.

Guy walks past

Book in hand

Cross hanging

Troubled man

Pretends he’s talking

Phone up high

Loud voice saying

Gotta go, bye.

Next comes

Super rich

Scoffs n’ clicks

little witch

Shrugs, turns

Leaves a buck

sneers with

lips like duck

Lastly shuffles

Worn out shoes

Still healing

His own wounds.

Bends down

Covers up

Holds his hand

Helps him up.

Carries him

special place

Gives him tea

Wipes his face

Pays the doctor

Peddled money

Leaves a note

Take care of him, hunny,

I’ll be back

If you need more

See he’s better.

Out the door

Mercy came

Helped the man

Gentle hands

Greater than

Nothing more

Nothing less

Lived his life

fully blessed.

Luke 10:25-37

The Parable of the Good Samaritan

25 On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

26 “What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?”

27 He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’[a]; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b]

28 “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”

29 But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”

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[c] 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.’

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

37 The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”

Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”
