Daily Inspiration for Friday, June 9


If God were your father, you would love Me, for I came from God. —Jn 8:42


We tell ourselves that we are not like the disbelieving Jews Jesus is accusing here. Of course, we love Jesus, so God must be our Father.  But loving Jesus is more than a matter of the heart. It is a matter of the arms and hands and feet and legs and brain and voice. It takes work.


“Jesus, help me to show others that I belong to You and the Father by volunteering to help the poor and disenfranchised.”
