Genuine love for Jesus requires a disciple to keep God’s commandments. The relationship between charity and obedience is essential in the Christian life.

Everyone wants to be good. Failure happens, though despite my best intentions, I am weak. I need to rely on Jesus to keep the commandments and to reflect God’s love today.

O Holy Spirit, come and inspire me to be docile to the Truth. Help me to keep god’s love of charity today. When I do this well, everything else falls into place.
