Reflection 24 February

ABM

Jesus says to us today: If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. As Christians we are called by Jesus to show God’s love to others. But how? Jesus tells us: Love your enemies. Do good. Lend, expecting nothing in return. Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. Do not judge. Do not condemn, Forgive. Give. Today is a good day to make a start.

Pray that each of us today might pick one of Jesus’ commands and begin to incorporate it into our lives, allowing God to shine through us to others.

Give thanks for Wontulp-Bi-Buya College in Cairns, giving thanks for the educational programs provided to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.
