This reflection is taken from my book, Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“Beloved, since God loved us so much, we should love one another” (1 John 4:9).
Reflection: When we obey the command in this verse of Scripture, we give life to one another. When we love our unborn neighbors, we do all we can to save them from the violence of abortion. And in doing so, we are loving God himself.
Prayer: Lord, help me understand that my love for those who may be difficult to accept or care for is not supposed to be measured based on my own strength, but on the strength of your love for us. Inspired by your generosity, make me generous. Amen.
