Have you ever been in a situation where you have seen someone who appears to be in need of help? Watch the video and then ask yourself how you would respond if in this situation.
The video states that when people are in a crowd it is easier to “pass the buck” and not respond if no one else is responding. When I was watching this I couldn’t believe that everyone kept walking by without making an effort to help. Even if you were not brave enough to approach the individual to offer aid there are other things you can do to help. You can tell the person you will call for assistance, if you are to afraid to talk with the person at least make a mental note of the location and make a call and have help sent.
The video reminds me of the Parable of the Good Samaritan. Maybe all we need to do in a situation such as this is to ask God to help us know what to do. Don’t simply do what others are doing. Ask God for the courage and the wisdom to help.
As the sheep look to their shepherd for guidance and safety, If we as humans, look to the Lord for guidance our hearts will be filled with the fruit of the Spirit: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control
Parable of the Good Samaritan Luke 10:25-37
Fruit of the Spirit Galatians 5:22-23
