But a Samaritan, as he journeyed, came to where he was, and when he saw him, he had compassion. He went to him and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he set him on his own animal and brought him to an inn and took care of him. And the next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper, saying, ‘Take care of him, and whatever more you spend, I will repay you when I come back.’ – Luke 10:33-35
OBSERVATION: Perhaps there is no passage that so clearly reminds us of Paramedics and EMTs. While others are wondering what to do or simply standing and staring, Paramedics and EMTs rush in to supply aid. They see things they wish they could forget. They do whatever is necessary. Untold lives are saved through their effort.
PRAYER: Father, we praise that You have supplied this world with Paramedics and EMTs. They remind us of You & Your action through Jesus. Please bless, comfort, and guide them on every situation they are called to. Thank You for so often working through their efforts. Protect their health and families. Please continue opening people’s hearts to be called to such blessed work. We pray these things through Jesus. Amen
