REVIEW: Remember The Good Samaritan by Jonathan Lee





Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him.The next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”

Luke 10: 30-37

This, Then is what I command you: Love one another

John 15:17

This story starts in a classroom filled with children when Mrs Phips starts to read the parable of Good Samaritan.

It’s about a man who was walking down the road from Jerusalem to Jericho and suddenly he was attacked by robbers. They left him wounded and he was lying weak on the side of the road.
A member of the clergy passed by he didn’t help, A Levite passed by he didn’t help. Later, a common man called Samaritan passed by and he bandaged his wound and took him to an inn and told the innkeeper to take care of him.

A samaritan helping a wounded person.
Took the wounded person to the inn.

Mrs Phips told the story in an interesting way: she compared the same man to a happy man and a sad man. Before he was attacked by the robbers, he was a happy man, after he was attacked by the robbers, he was a sad man. After he was taken care of by the innkeeper, he became a happy man once again. This comparison helps little kids to remember the story very quickly and will help them to walk by them.

Mrs Phips compares the story to a happy and sad person.

A book filled with beautiful freestyle drawings and loved the simple and creative story.


We may not see broken people with a donkey on the road, but we could see people around us upset, or feeling sad or hurt or broken inside. We can act as good samaritans at that time and console those people and spread love.

If you find a sad person, give them a hug and remember the good Samaritan.

A simple smile will create wonders for people.  Let’s teach the gift of love to our kids from a young age. Let’s sow the seeds of love into their hearts and one day it will bear fruit, for sure.
