Luke 10:30-35 TPT

30 Jesus replied, “There was once a Jewish[a] man traveling from Jerusalem to Jericho when bandits robbed him along the way. They beat him severely, stripped him naked, and left him half dead.

31 “Soon, a Jewish priest walking down the same road came upon the wounded man. Seeing him from a distance, the priest crossed to the other side of the road and walked right past him, not turning to help him one bit.

32 “Later, a religious man, a Levite,[b] came walking down the same road and likewise crossed to the other side to pass by the wounded man without stopping to help him.

33 “Finally, another man, a Samaritan,[c] came upon the bleeding man and was moved with tender compassion for him. 34 He stooped down and gave him first aid, pouring olive oil on his wounds, disinfecting them with wine, and bandaging them to stop the bleeding. Lifting him up, he placed him on his own donkey and brought him to an inn. Then he took him from his donkey and carried him to a room for the night. 35 The next morning he took his own money from his wallet and gave it to the innkeeper with these words: ‘Take care of him until I come back from my journey. If it costs more than this, I will repay you when I return.’[d]

 

Luke 10:25-29 TPT

25 Just then a religious scholar stood before Jesus in order to test his doctrines. He posed this question: “Teacher, what requirement must I fulfill if I want to live forever in heaven?”

26 Jesus replied, “What do you read in the Law? How do you understand it?”

27 The religious scholar answered, “It states, ‘You must love the Lord God with all your heart, all your passion, all your energy, and your every thought. And you must love your neighbor as yourself.’ ”

28 Jesus said, “That is correct. Now go and do exactly that and you will live.”

29 Wanting to justify himself, he questioned Jesus further, saying, “What do you mean by ‘my neighbor’?”

There are 3 mindsets here depicted in this story:

The Priest had , which is thinking only how people can benefit them and if they can’t help me, I won’t deal with them (this is where manipulation comes in)

Luke 10:31 TPT

31 “Soon, a Jewish priest walking down the same road came upon the wounded man. Seeing him from a distance, the priest crossed to the other side of the road and walked right past him, not turning to help him one bit.

The Levite had which is the thinking of if I avoid this problem it will go away (eventually the seed form of this thought process turns into a harvest that is debilitating.

Luke 10:32 TPT

32 “Later, a religious man, a Levite,[b] came walking down the same road and likewise crossed to the other side to pass by the wounded man without stopping to help him.

The Samaritan had which is how can I use what I have to be a blessing to others (this is the bedrock of generosity).

Luke 10:33-35 TPT

33 “Finally, another man, a Samaritan,[c] came upon the bleeding man and was moved with tender compassion for him. 34 He stooped down and gave him first aid, pouring olive oil on his wounds, disinfecting them with wine, and bandaging them to stop the bleeding. Lifting him up, he placed him on his own donkey and brought him to an inn. Then he took him from his donkey and carried him to a room for the night. 35 The next morning he took his own money from his wallet and gave it to the innkeeper with these words: ‘Take care of him until I come back from my journey. If it costs more than this, I will repay you when I return.’

The Samaritan was generous with .(He attended to the one hurt and stayed the night with him)

The Samaritan was generous with .(He used his skill-set to help heal the wounds)

The Samaritan was generous with .(He gave olive oil, wine, bandages, his own donkey, inn fare and money)

Luke 10:27 TPT

27 The religious scholar answered, “It states, ‘You must love the Lord God with all your heart, all your passion, all your energy, and your every thought. And you must love your neighbor as yourself.’ 

Proverbs 11:24-25 TPT

24 Generosity brings prosperity,
    but withholding from charity brings poverty.
25 Those who live to bless others
    will have blessings heaped upon them,
    and the one who pours out his life to pour out blessings
    will be saturated with favor.

2nd Corinthians 9:6-7 TPT

Here’s my point. A stingy sower[c] will reap a meager harvest, but the one who sows from a generous spirit will reap an abundant harvest. Let giving flow from your heart, not from a sense of religious duty. Let it spring up freely from the joy of giving—all because God loves hilarious generosity!

Generosity Produces:

 

John 3:16 NIV

16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
