The faith of the centurion who seeks out Jesus is an icon to the truth that God’s love is for everyone. This man is the last person whom anyone thought would seek out Jesus, yet he does so. From where comes his faith, but God?

Do I discount the value of people who are different form me? Am I dismissive of ideas and values other than my own? What if I were open to surprises like Jesus?

O Holy Spirit, open my heart and mind to God’s will. May I be humble enough to allow God to surprise me today.
