Daily reading and prayer

Monday 15 – 1 John 4:19  We love because he first loved us.

Loving Lord, we hear about ordinary people. They spend years making choices each day about small ordinary things. Their positive and life-giving attitudes eventually lead to serious decisions about standing with the poor and the underprivileged and those treated unjustly. Inspire us, Lord, to choose wisely in the ordinary circumstances of our daily lives. Giving us love first. Having then chosen wisely in small things, inspire us with courage and generosity when we make more important decisions. Always remembering, that your commandment is to love one another.
