One-Minute Reflection: 1 John 3:11, 18 (30 Days of Prayer for Unity #26)

Listen to the most recent episode of my podcast: https://anchor.fm/simplediakonia/episodes/One-Minute-Reflection-1-John-311–18-30-Days-of-Prayer-for-Unity-26-eqgbcd

“For this is the message you have heard from the beginning: we should love one another. Children, let us love not in word or speech but in deed and truth.” (1 John 3:11, 18).

Reflection:

Talk of unity is cheap when its foundation lacks charity.

One significant danger to unity is jealousy. Unhinged, envy produces wrath and depression, often harming oneself and others (Cf. Genesis 4:1-16).

God created us to love one another; let us do His will.

Today’s Intention:

O Lord, help us to bring unity to our nation through charitable deeds and truth.

Peace and Goodness
