If anyone is rich in worldly possessions and sees a brother in need but refuses to open his heart, how can the love of God abide in him?” (1 John 3:17).
Reflection: Our relationship with God depends on how well we tend to the needs of others. If this applies to the need others have for material possessions, how much more does it apply to the need others have for life itself? God’s love cannot survive in us if we turn our backs on the unborn and all whose lives are in danger.
Prayer: Abide with us, Lord, for we do see those in need and our hearts are open to them. Amen.
