The Good Samaritan

We’ve probably all heard the expression, “This separates the men from the boys!” 
What kinds of things separate the men from the boys? 

Things that involve danger and risk. Things that take courage and a willingness to sacrifice. Accepting the fact that many rewards are deferred until later. Things that are grueling and gut-wrenching. Things that require maturity and perseverance, not just boyish enthusiasm and energy.

In a sense, that’s what the parable of the Good Samaritan teaches about the Christian life. Jesus isn’t separating the men from the boys, Jesus is separating the real Christian from the merely religious.
