If you love those who love you, what reward will you get?  – Mt 5:46

Reflection.  This is the hardest thing to understand.  We are actually expected to love people who do not care a twit for us.  Do you see why?  The Lord loves them, but they do not know it.  He is depending on you to be His channel of communications.  You do not need words.   Just do a kind deed now and then; even a smile can open the door to a new beginning for someone in need.

Prayer.  Extend my love, O Lord, beyond my family and friends to those who need my concern.  Let me reach out to them in concrete ways.
