After reviewing the details of the well-known parable, Dr. Sleeth summarized the sequence of the Samaritan's response:
- He saw the problem.
- He was moved to compassion.
- He used his resources to help.
- He took on-going responsibility.
What a fabulous lesson in stewardship! Dr. Sleeth brought new insight and perspective to this parable I've read so many times, and these words inspired me in a new way.
