Who is my Neighbour?
Luke 10:25-37: A man walks up to Jesus and asks him what he must do to inherit eternal life. In response, Jesus tells the story of the Samaritan who showed active mercy to a man in desperate need.
The story is told of an Englishman in discussion with another man, who happened to be Jewish. The Englishman said to the Jewish man, “Why do you Jews always answer a question with a question?”
The Jewish man replied, “Why shouldn’t we?”
Our reading from Luke’s Gospel for today of the Parable of the Good Samaritan reminds me a bit of that story.

We thank you, O God, for your hand that cares for us with hope, your heart that beats to the rhythm of our life, and your breath that fills us with love.
Open our eyes to the unexpected compassion alive and active in our world and lead us as your disciples to be the unlikely agents who give your love a smiling face.
