" A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves..." (Lk.10:30)
A thief is a person who steals another's property. We have them around us today in different shades: males and females. They relish this ungodly act. They deprive other people of what rightly belong to them, either secretly or forcefully. This is the case with the man in our text of today. Thieves operate at any time of the day, attacking their unwary victims, in privacy or in public glare.
The experience of this man happened in the daylight, while he was on a trip. Eventually, he could not get to his destination because of the attack. He lost virtually all his valuables and barely survived the attack. Thanks to the Good Samaritan who came to his aid.
A thief is a potential destiny killer / waster. If the man in our text did not survive or got immediate help, he could have died, just like that ! Imagine how many people with this type of experience in our contemporary world. May God help us ! Amen.
I pray for you today, neither you nor any member of your family shall be victim of thieves.
