Moses knew better than anyone where God's commandments came from. He alone went up the mountain. He alone received the two stone tablets. But in today's readings, he reminds the people that these laws are no longer remote or mysterious. By this time, these laws should be on their lips and in their hearts, part of their very being. They are for us as well. Once we have internalized something, it is easier to act accordingly. This is Moses's lesson. "It is something very near to you . . .you have only to carry it out" (Deuteronomy 30:14). As important as what the good Samaritan did is what he did not do. He did not look at the victim and see someone of another tribe or race. He did not wonder if the victim might have been somewhat to blame. He did not look around for someone else. He did not leave it to the authorities whenever they might happen by. He did not let a sense of inadequacy stop him. He did not recoil from touching the stranger. Instead, he acted immediately and thoroughly as a true neighbor to the man. So too must we. There is a third person in the story of the good Samaritan who does not help the man who was attacked, and we probably don't even realize it. It's the victim himself. Of course he didn't help, you're thinking; he's half-dead and unable to move or even cry out. But isn't that us, in our sinfulness? We've fallen. We're wounded. We cannot bring ourselves back to life. We cannot redeem ourselves. We need Jesus, the good Samaritan. Only he has the power to heal us of our brokenness and sin, to give life after death, to redeem us.
