Our Good Samaritan

Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ (Galatians 6:2, KJV).

Our church, Hudson Avenue Baptist Church in Oklahoma City, sat two blocks from the bar. One night a thug came out of the bar with evil designs on the parking lot across the street.

After our pastor dismissed the church service, we discovered the thug had slashed our two front tires. All the tires on the street side of our front parking lot had slashes. "Dad, what are we going to do?" our daughter groaned. "We can't walk thirty miles to Norman."

Our Good Samaritan looked at our tires and said, "I have some tires that size at home." He drove across Oklahoma City and arrived back in about an hour. He helped replace the slashed tires. "Thank you, thank you," Leon and I told him.

That thug did us a favor. Now we had good tires. Our slashed tires showed signs of wear. Our Good Samaritan refused any pay for those tires. We thanked the Lord for a safe arrival at home that night, albeit later than usual.

The love of our friend warmed our hearts. He followed Jesus' admonition after the story of the Good Samaritan in the Bible, "Go and do thou likewise" (Luke 10:37). When we see someone in need, let us remember the example of these helpers.
