This Week’s Gospel Message

Wednesday, July 10th, 2019

This Week’s Gospel message for Sunday, July 14th is from Luke 10:25-37.

“Jesus replied [to the scholar of the law], ‘A man fell victim to robbers as he went down from Jerusalem to Jericho. They stripped and beat him and went off leaving him half-dead. A priest happened to be going down that road, but when he saw him, he passed by on the opposite side. Likewise a Levite came to the place, and when he saw him, he passed by on the opposite side. But a Samaritan traveler who came upon him was moved with compassion at the sight. Which of these three, in your opinion, was neighbor to the robbers’ victim?’ He answered, ‘The one who treated him with mercy.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Go and do likewise.’”

“As important as what the Good Samaritan did is what he did not do. He did not let a sense of inadequacy stop him. He did not recoil from touching the stranger. Instead, he acted immediately and thoroughly as a true neighbor to the man. So too must we.”
