Jesus tells in Luke 10:25-37: The Good Samaritan. What is the moral to this parable? How does it apply to the study “The Kindness of Strangers” by Levine?

The parable of the Good Samaritan given by Jesus in Luke 10: 25-37 is relevant to modern times. People avoided the injured man, and only a despised Samaritan offered help. The moral of the story is that people should help others, even though they do not know them. Today’s cities are full of strangers, and people should be kind and generous enough to help others. The study involved visiting small and large cities in the US and observing how kind people were toward others. In large cities, people behaved like the individuals in the parable who voided the injured man. In small and medium-sized cities, people behaved like the Good Samaritans by offering help to the injured individual. The likelihood of encountering a Good Samaritan today varies from city to city, depending on its personality.
