He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine.
The Samaritan most likely used pieces of his own clothing to bandage the wounded traveler. He used oil to clean his wounds and wine to soothe the inflammation. He even gave up his ride and walked alongside (Luke 10:34b). We must become prayerful for others along our path. When a need appears, we must respond. If its a physical need, respond in a practical way. If it isn’t, respond by listening; give options, not opinions.
How do you respond to people suffering?
