Jesus' parable of the Good Samaritan is a model for
our online behavior. Jesus’ timeless lessons of love
and compassion toward our neighbor should also guide
our attitude about bullying. We should avoid
attacking, hurting, or embarrassing someone else.
Always think about the consequences of forwarding
texts, emails, or videos. But our responsibility
doesn’t stop there. Loving our online neighbor means
reporting injustices and comforting those who are
injured—just as the Good Samaritan. Anyone we
encounter online is as much a neighbor to us as the
injured man was in the parable.
