Proper 10 (15) 2016 – Luke 10:33-34

Friday, July 8, 2016

Luke 10:33-34 But a Samaritan while traveling came near him; and when he saw him, he was moved with pity.  He went to him and bandaged his wounds, having poured oil and wine on them. Then he put him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him.

To the Jews of Jesus’ time, Samaritan’s were ritually unclean and even despised.  Deeply religious men passed by this poor man, but the Samaritan comes to this person’s aid, even paying the innkeeper to care for him for a few extra days.  We are reminded that being a neighbor is more about how we care for one another than sharing proximate addresses.

Loving God, help us to see your face in each person we meet today.  Amen.
