What will your deeds amount to

"What will your deeds amount to"

A Samaritan who was traveling came upon a man who had been stripped, beaten and left half dead. He took pity on him by bandaging his wounds with oil and wine. Then he put the man on his donkey and took him to an inn. He cared for the man and on the next day the Samaritan gave the innkeeper two silver coins to look after him in his absence (Luke 10:30-35 NIV).

In those same verses we see that a priest and another man actually passed right by this man before the Samaritan came along. Wow! Can you imagine being badly beaten while laying on the ground thinking that you're probably going to die then watching not one but two people look right pass you as if you weren't even there?

It's sad to say but we've all had this type of encounter at sometime or another. Maybe it wasn't to this extent but nonetheless it has happened. How did we get to this point? Well we got there because we would much rather allow our heads to do the talking rather than our hearts. Jesus was a man of great compassion no matter what the need was and we see this throughout Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. If Jesus could be nondiscriminatory towards those in need why aren't we willing to do the very same?

Remember this verse the next time you’re tempted to allow your brain to do the talking instead of your heart-A man reaps what he sows-Galatians 6:7 NIV
