Photo cf. Google Images
DAY 4 Theme: Changed by the Lord's victory over evil. Readings: Exodus 23: 1-9 Do not follow the majority in wrong doing. Psalm 1 Happy are those who delight in the law of the Lord. Romans 12: 17-2 Overcome evil with good. Matthew 4: 1-11 Worship the Lord your God, and serve Him only.
Prayer: Lord Jesus Christ, we thank You for Your victory over evil and division. We praise You for Your sacrifice and Your resurrection that conquer death. Help us in our everyday struggle against all adversity. May the Holy Spirit give us strength and wisdom so that, following You, we may overcome evil with good, and division with reconciliation. Amen.Questions for reflection: 1. Where do we see evil on our own lives? 2. In what way can our faith in Christ help us to overcome evil and the Evil One? 3. What can we learn from situations in our community where division has given way to reconciliation?
