Daniel Borup - Good Samaritan
Some of my favorite stories about Jesus are the ones that he himself told. These parables teach us so much about the way to happiness and eternal life. The parable of The Good Samaritan has always been, and still is a story that speaks to my spirit. To me, this parable encompasses all of what Jesus was trying to teach us by his words and example. This story truly teaches of Christ-like love and compassion. It is easy to forget to love thy neighbor as thyself, and it is easy to forget that everyone is our neighbor. This story reminds us to be loving to everyone no matter who they are and what our differences might be.
Hopefully we can all relate to the Good Samaritan. Hopefully we can all have compassion and show mercy to our neighbors. Yet there are times we will find that we are the ones in need of saving. It is important to remember at these times that it is Christ who is the ultimate Good Samaritan and he shows compassion and has the power to save us.
In my sculpture The Good Samaritan I hope to portray the same Christ-like love and compassion that I feel when I read this story.
