Thought for the Week

The Good Samaritan represents Jesus,

who directs his attention

to what being a good neighbour entails.


The road from Jericho to Jerusalem

runs through our neighbourhood too

& is strewn with wounded people.

There is a world crying out for mercy

at our very door.


If we are alert & sensitive,

we can come into contact with people

who are lonely, hungry for love & attention,

crushed by disappointment & failure,

guilt ridden & wounded by sin.


Jesus expects us to stop & help those in need,

even though it will cost us time, trouble & expense.
