I had grown up knowing the parable and was very familiar with it, but putting it into a modern-day setting definitely forced me to take a deeper look at it than I ever had before.

One of the biggest elements that I hadn't really considered was just how much the Samaritan did and gave up for the wounded stranger. It becomes a pretty personal thing when you're tending someone's wounds with your own hands, not to mention making yourself responsible for their care!

The other question that I really became curious about was how this experience would have changed the people involved--particularly the man who was hurt. How would he have felt toward his rescuer? How would it have changed the way he looked at Samaritans in the future? Would anything in the Samaritan's life have changed? What about those who passed by? Obviously those answers aren't contained in the original parable, and there are a lot of possible outcomes, but exploring those what-ifs--why does it matter and what changes could God work through a sacrificial love like this?--became a key part of the story for me.(less)

Sweet little story of sacrifice and "doing to the least of these." I love stories where children decide to do the right thing even when it's hard without having to make the wrong decision first and suffer the consequences. <3
