Why Jesus told the story of the Good Samaritan

‘What must I do?’ the lawyer asked,
‘eternal life to have?’
– the most important question – will
I live beyond the grave?

If fact, he felt he had some chance,
thought he was good enough
– but Jesus challenged him to think
– he saw beyond his bluff.

He sets the standard very high,
and when we realise
how much we fail, we then may ask
his grace – and that is wise.
