A lawyer asked Jesus what he should do to inherit eternal life. Jesus replied, ®Thou shalt love the Lord they God with all they heart...and thy neighbor as thyself.® The lawyer, seeking to justify his actions asked, ®Who is my neighbor?® Jesus then gave the parable of the Good Samaritan in which a man fell among thieves who beat him and left him for dead. A priest saw the injured man, but rather than stopping to help he passed by on the other side. A Samaritan, a group of people often despised at the time, came by and stopped. He bound up the man's wounds and carried him on his donkey to an inn where he paid them to nurse the man back to health. Jesus then asked the lawyer which of the men was neighbor to the wounded man? The lawyer replied that the Samaritan was neighbor and Jesus replied, ®Do thou likewise.® I included a cord knotted on the neck of the jar, symbolic that we are all tied together and everyone is our neighbor.®
