Reading: Ephesians 1:5-6
In love 5 he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will – 6 to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.

Thought for Reflection: What is the nature of the spiritual blessing that we have through Jesus that we thought about on Monday? What is the Grand Design he has in mind (Tuesday)? God’s plan is not just to make us holy and blameless, but so much more than that. Through his great love his plan has always been to make us his children. Perfection it seems is not achieved through rules but through relationship.

Prayer: Thank you Father for the undeserved love that you have always had for us! Help us to learn to love others in the same way.
