The parable of the Good Samaritan is an icon to the truth that God is full of surprises. Even as the story unfolds, the message of God awaiting us where we least expect it opens a new horizon for the believer.

God calls us to see everyone as a neighbor and to seek Him among the stranger in our midst.

O Jesus, help me to remain open to God’s surprises today. May I be keen to hear Your voice among strangers.
