15th Sunday of Ordinary Time

The story of the good Samaritan. The law student in it thought that he knew more than Jesus. Jesus could have easily shown His own superiority, but His Jesus’ job was to unify, not divide. Instead, Jesus reached into the student’s heart to find the goodness that was there. Like He does the law student, Jesus takes us on a journey and walks it with us. The student first lived in his mind, but Jesus showed him how to live in his heart, just as we are called to live in ours.
