“Some people slanderously accuse us of proposing, ‘Let us do evil so that good may result’” – Romans 3:8
Reflection: When we do choose evil, not only does that have consequences on the outside, but it changes us on the inside as well. The same is true when we do good. The battle for life is one that we conduct only by choosing good. We can never destroy or kill in the name of life.
Prayer: Lord, how deep is the darkness and how great the chaos when we think that the end justifies the means. Protect us from trying to justify evil for good intentions. Amen.
