Lazarus for me

The rich man didn’t do anything to cause or contribute to Lazarus’ poverty or ill-health. It was what he did not do which caused his downfall. In times of examination of conscience we can tend to focus on identifying our wrongful actions, rather than our wrongful omissions. The former is not too difficult, but the latter is much more challenging. It’s so open-ended. What am I not doing in my life that I should be doing? Who is the Lazarus at my gate?
