The Amazing Neighbor

A reading for Tuesday, May 3, 2016: Luke 10:26-37.

It's amazing when we realize that sometimes God's mercy does not come from inside the places we expect, but from outside in the places we would never imagine such a possibility.

The Samaritan would never have been the place for God's people to have found a friend, let alone someone who saved them. Yet, that's the example Jesus uses of the greatest commandment of loving God and loving our neighbors.

I wonder where God's mercy might be waiting for you today? It's likely not in the places you already know where to go looking? It might even be in a neighbor or in the one you are called to be a neighbor to.
