Genuine love is reflexive; the more that is given, the more that is received. Likewise generous love – charity – finds its fullest expression in deeds of service.

The actions of believers can inspire confidence in god’s presence in the world. Many people may believe in love because someone loves them first.

Dear Jesus, may my experience of being beloved blossom into deeds of love and service to others. Inspire me to first see the needs of the least. May I seek Christ in the poor today.
