But a Samaritan came to the place where the man was. When he saw the man, he felt sorry for him.
He went to him, poured olive oil and wine on his wounds and bandaged them. Then he put the man on his own donkey. He took him to an inn and took care of him.
The next day he took out two silver coins. He gave them to the owner of the inn. 'Take care of him,' he said. 'When I return, I will pay you back for any extra expense you may have.'
"Which of the three do you think was a neighbor to the man who was attacked by robbers?"
The authority on the law replied, "The one who felt sorry for him." Jesus told him, "Go and do as he did."
Jesus and his disciples went on their way. Jesus came to a village where a woman named Martha lived. She welcomed him into her home.
She had a sister named Mary. Mary sat at the Lord's feet listening to what he said.
But Martha was busy with all the things that had to be done. She came to Jesus and said, "Lord, my sister has left me to do the work by myself. Don't you care? Tell her to help me!"
"Martha, Martha," the Lord answered. "You are worried and upset about many things.
But only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better. And it will not be taken away from her."
