Who will show mercy

Jesus asked “Which of these three, do you think, was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of thieves?” The man answered, “The one who showed him mercy.” Jesus said to him, “God and do likewise.” Luke 10:36-37 NRSV

Battered and bruised

in the ditches of life

looking up into the faces

of strangers and friends

the alien and the familiar

who will show mercy?

From Streams of Mercy: a meditative commentary on the Bible by Ann Fontaine.
