In verses 27 and 28 Jesus answered the expert in the law’s question about how he could inherit eternal life, “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’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” 28 “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”” I found it interesting that the expert didn’t ask about salvation, he asked about eternal life. Jesus acknowledged the expert’s assessment of how to gain eternal life with the story of the Good Samaritan. I love this story because it not only shows what is right but also the spirit of doing what is right. Sometimes it is not easy to love people who are difficult to love. We need to reflect the love of Christ in all we do no matter how difficult it may be sometimes.
