Do something this week to overcome evil with self-giving love.  Enter into the pain and suffering of another by offering your compassionate presence.  Or consider what kinds of action you might do to resist evil, injustice, and oppression in whatever forms they present themselves.  What practical things could you do to alleviate suffering through an act of mercy?  How could you advocate for justice so that all people can be freed from suffering?  Ask the Spirit of the risen Christ to empower and guide you as you consider the best way for you to offer yourself with self-giving love for another this week.  Afterwards, reflect on your experience and observe what occurs within and around you as you follow in the way of Jesus.
