Last week we are told about the parable of the good Samaritan. Reflecting on last week we are called to be better disciples to one another in a way that we become more Christ like. Even Paul calls each of us to be more complete with Christ. In doing so, we have to break out of our comfort zones and reach out to those who are in need of our attention and love. The gospel reading for the 16th Sunday of Ordinary Time is a good compliment to the good Samaritan story. Last week, it was mentioned how we should act to one another to become more like Christ. This Sunday we reflect on how we must learn to better listen to one another, even if it means sacrificing a moment that might pull us away from Christ.
Let’s be reminded of how the teachings of Jesus make us better disciples.
Reflection: Do I act differently around strangers who look important and ones who don’t? do I treat others with kindness, whether listening or serving?
