Deal with others as you would like them to deal with you.  – Lk 6:31

Reflection. In the area of sexuality, as in everything else, it is important to keep in mind the Golden Rule.  Lust is a violation of this rule.  Lust is an inordinate desire for the gratification of one’s sexual appetite.  It is self-absorbed.  Eventually, others are treated like objects or, worse, like slaves.

Prayer. Jesus, You have the wisdom that gives my life balance and holiness.  Help me always to control my desires.
