The Tramp Preacher talks about God's view of bridges connecting the road and the heart. 

Gas From The Tramp Preacher's Tank.

"But a certain Samaritan . . . went to him".

When he did that he built a bridge, a bridge that spanned one of the oldest quarrels in the world. The Jews and the Samaritans had no dealings all because of the intermarriage of the Samaritans with formers. They were despised by the Jews. Imagine the electric shock when Jesus said, "But a certain Samaritan". They grimaced but Jesus finished the story.

Life Always Progressed as Men Build Bridges

In fact we exist to build bridges. Not to follow slavishly the parable but in the spirit of the Samaritan.

A bridge is a device to carry us over a rough place in the road. Think what our roads would be like if it were not for bridges. In the horse and buggy days we had "thank you mam's", now we put a tile under the road. It is a bridge and makes the road smooth. On a trip the other day I counted sixty two bridges going fourteen miles. One was over a large river.
