Group discussion

  1. Share some of the examples you have chosen above and what you will do to help those people.
  2. Read Luke 10:25-37.
    1. What is the main lesson of the parable of the Good Samaritan?
    2. Why did the priest and the Levite (religious leaders) not help the person in trouble?
    3. What do we learn from the example of the Samaritan about what it means to “love your neighbour as yourself”?

  4. What are our rights and responsibilities when we as Christians meet people who are in need and in trouble?
  5. How will relationships and respect influence your response when you meet people in trouble? Use the three examples you chose above to explain your answer.

Commitment

  • I trust God to provide for me.
