It is the spirit that gives life; the flesh can achieve nothing.  The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life.  - Jn 6:63

Reflection. Some people rely too much on their own instincts and their own will.  When they get themselves into trouble, they forget to pray for God’s help to change the things they can change and accept the things they cannot.

Prayer. Amen, Lord, I build my life on Your words.  I rejoice in the knowledge of Your mercy and love.
