VICTORY IN CARING

BIBLE TEXT: LUKE 10:25-37

MEMORY VERSE: “But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him” (LUKE 10:33).

It was a Special Olympics where handicapped children competed with tremendous dedication and enthusiasm. In a 220-yard dash event, contestants lined up at the starting line, and at the blast of the whistle, started running as fast as they could. Andrew quickly took the lead, and was soon about 50 yards ahead of everybody else. As he approached the final turn, he looked back and saw that his best friend had fallen and hurt himself on the track. Andrew stopped and looked at the finish line. People were hollering, “Run, Andrew, run.” But he did not. Rather, he went back, helped his friend up, brushed off the dust from his body, and, hand-in-hand, they crossed the finish line dead last. But as they did, the spectators cheered, because there are some things more important than winning.

As a child of God, your goal should be to develop both winning and caring attitudes, because if you care for others, you win. Do not let an opportunity to help pass you by, no matter the urgency before you. Be like the Samaritan in our text.

QUOTE: If you care for others, you win.

CHALLENGE: Do not let an opportunity to help pass you by.

PRAYER: Help me Lord to have a caring spirit.
