Subject: Good Samaritan
Though I try to live the imitation of Christ it is very hard...my work days are long, 5AM to 6PM...the pace is frantic and I sometimes have opportunities to be that helping spirit and pass it up because I feel that time will not permit me that luxury...as I write this I know how horrible that sounds...it is shameful!! I am trying to not let business commitments keep me from keeping christian commitments... additionally, the violence in our society sometimes keeps me from helping motorists, poor people who are walking, situations where it would require me to stop to give aide...my children and friends chastise me because on occassion I do stop...they fear for my safety...but it means that I cannot respond to the feelings I have to help others...I do however, give assistance through organizations(money, time, etc)...I wish I could be spontaneous in my efforts sometimes...all in all I guess what I am saying is that I am aware of the need but do not do all that I should and could do...
