August 09 2017 The Closeness of the Good Samaritan

The Good Samaritan is none other than Our Lord. He comes into our lives when no one else will. Though we may be half-dead, he bandages us, carries us to safety and even pays for our recovery. This is how much he loves us. In the people of the Old Testament, we find men and women with stories perhaps not unlike our own. There is suffering, to be sure. However, to each person, God is present. Remarkably, he then ‘draws straight with crooked lines’. Scripture echoes this. Rom 8: 28 – “We know that in everything God works for good with those who love him, who are called according to his purpose.”
