One in our group, who was a lawyer, asked the Rider what kind of Mind it is that is the Mind of God. The lawyer said to the Rider, "What shall I do to inherit eternal life?" The Rider answered, "What is written in the law and what is your reading of it?"
The lawyer answered and said, "You shall love your Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strengh, and with all your Mind, and your neighbor as yourself."
The Rider answered and said, "You have answered rightly; do this and you will live."
But the lawyer then said to the Rider, "And who is my neighbor?"
The rider answered, "A man was travleng and stopped at a rest area on the expressway and was accosted by theives that beat him and left him half dead. Then a man pulled in dressed in religious garb and saw the man and kept going. Then a man in a suit and tie came in the rest area and saw the man and also kept going. But then a man that was of a hated ethnos by the world came by and when he saw him he had compassion on him and bandaged his wounds and helped him back into his car and drove to a motel and took care of him and paid for the lodging and gave him 2 days of his own pay when he departed and told the clerk at the desk to put any further charges for the man on his VISA card. So which of the 3 was neighbor to him that fell among the thieves?"
Then the lawyer said, "He who showed mercy on him."
The Rider said to the lawyer, "Go and do likewise."
