1 Peter 4:1-8
Question for reflection:
How do I show those around me that I love them? Who could I love better? What is preventing me from being more loving?
Prayer for the day:
I want to be loving, God, spilling over with the kind of love that transforms the world, your love. Break down the barriers that get in the way of my loving. Love me through the waiting between Friday’s crucifixion and Sunday’s resurrection, so that I, too, can love. Amen.
