St Bride's: Soul Thoughts

February 24

"A Samaritan traveller was moved with compassion." (Luke 10: 33)

The point of Jesus' story about the good Samaritan was that it was the outsider who gave help while the religious insiders passed by. Risky, costly and loving action speaks louder than religious ritual or legal compliance. Anyone who sees other people as God sees them, with the eyes of love and compassion, is doing God's will.

Lord of compassion, help us to show love and concern to others as you love both us and them. Amen.
