Today is National Good Samaritan Day! This holiday provides an opportunity for us to spread goodwill and show compassion for others in need.
The term “Good Samaritan” originates from the parable of the Good Samaritan, which can be found in the Gospel of Luke. The parable portrays a good-natured Samaritan who helps an injured stranger in need, despite their religious and ideological differences. The term can now be understood to encompass all actions that are done unselfishly for those in need.
Celebrate National Good Samaritan Day by volunteering at a local soup kitchen, paying for a stranger’s coffee, or helping out a co-worker. However you choose to celebrate, make sure to spread kindness and generosity today.
