The parables of God’s mercy teach us that all of the words and deeds of Jesus are oriented to the good and to wholeness. God’s love and compassion for all of His creatures is made manifest in the person of Jesus.

Am I open to God’s wisdom in my life? Do I leave room in my mind and heart for what God desires?

O Holy Spirit, may I be moved to follow God’s plan today. Inspire me to be faithful to the example of Jesus.
