That other car who cut you off on the road today rushing to his dying son.

The one who sold you your dinner whose nine-year-old daughter skipped school because she helped cook it.

The taxi driver who couldn’t give you change because he was robbed by the passenger before you.

All the homeless Syrians and the family sleeping on a kariton near your condo.

“Who is my neighbor?” asked the teacher of the law.

Jesus answered with a story and a question, “Who was a neighbor to the man who was robbed?”

“The one who showed mercy.” the man replied.

“Go and do likewise.” Jesus commanded.
