How You Look Could Save Your Life

A man is walking along a busy sidewalk, starts to cough, and collapses to the pavement. Do you stop to help? What criteria do you use to decide whether or not to stop?

The following video by NorniTUBE suggests that the clothes on a person's back could spell the difference between life and death.

Anybody else think of the ethic of reciprocity when watching this? Yeah, me neither, but what about The Golden Rule? Jesus said it in Matthew 7:12, "Do to others what you would have them do to you."

Truth is...we could also deepen this by going past Matthew 7 and hitting on Matthew 25: "Whatever you've done to the least of these brethren of mine, you have done to me." The video asked, "What if this were you?" I'll go beyond that and ask, "What if this was Jesus?"
