The parable of the Good Samaritan is a challenge to each one of us to review the stereotypes that we have of others. Often, a stereotype is created because of insufficient or incomplete information about a situation or about the other. It is also created because many of us feel comfortable when we are able to categorize people and place them in neat pigeon holes that we have created in our minds and hearts. Albert Einstein said “It is easier to disintegrate an atom than a prejudice”.
Will you attempt to look with the eyes of the heart?
