Then a Samaritann traveling down the road came to where the hurt man was. When he saw the man, he felt very sorry for him.
The Samaritan went to him, poured olive oil and winen on his wounds, and bandaged them. Then he put the hurt man on his own donkey and took him to an inn where he cared for him.
The next day, the Samaritan brought out two coins, gave them to the innkeeper, and said, 'Take care of this man. If you spend more money on him, I will pay it back to you when I come again.'"
Then Jesus said, "Which one of these three men do you think was a neighbor to the man who was attacked by the robbers?"
The expert on the law answered, "The one who showed him mercy." Jesus said to him, "Then go and do what he did."
While Jesus and his followers were traveling, Jesus went into a town. A woman named Martha let Jesus stay at her house.
Martha had a sister named Mary, who was sitting at Jesus' feet and listening to him teach.
But Martha was busy with all the work to be done. She went in and said, "Lord, don't you care that my sister has left me alone to do all the work? Tell her to help me."
But the Lord answered her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and upset about many things.
Only one thing is important. Mary has chosen the better thing, and it will never be taken away from her."
