An Abundance of Love

Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgive, and you shall be forgiven. Give, and it shall be given to you: good measure and pressed down and shaken together and running over shall they give into your bosom. For with the same measure that you shall mete withal, it shall be measured to you again.
Luke 6:36-38 (Douay-Rheims Bible)

Prayer Reflection

Dear Father you know our thoughts better than we do. Often without thinking what we are doing we judge by appearance those we come across. We judge by their actions, or their words. Often we condemn another without full knowledge about them but what we know so little of. How often do we go the extra mile for those we don't care for. But do it for those we love. Where is our love and non-judgement then. Do we truly give of ourselves by way of loving each person as if they are God themselves. They are made in His image and in need of love just as much as you or I do. If we withold the love for them, then it's our own fault when we do not receive love in return. Love will pour out in abundace in our life when we give it freely to others without expecting it in return. Spread the love, love your neighbor, see how much love will be come back to you. Amen
