The Parable of the Good Samaritan is an excellent example of how theory must become practice. The parable is a deep well, and we can talk about many things. Today we will "connect the dots" between theoretical knowledge and practical actions. Theory is useless without practice. The lawyer understood theory well, and the parable further explained the incarnation (theory) and applied it to how we must live. The dots we connect are summed up by the following snippets from this Gospel: "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God ... this do, and thou shalt live," "Who is my neighbor?," "And by chance there came down...," “But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was...," and “Take care of him!" At the end we give two critical practical suggestions to how we can love our neighbor, and perhaps an unexpected benefit.
