Dear God,Help Us Remember.

O God, Help us
remember that the jerk who cut us off in traffic last night is a single mother
who worked nine hours that day and is rushing home to cook dinner, help with
homework, do the laundry and spend a few precious moments with her children.
Help us to remember that the
pierced, tattooed, disinterested young man who can't make change correctly is a
worried 19-year-old college student, balancing his apprehension over final exams
with his fear of not getting his student loans for next semester.
Remind us, Lord, that the scary
looking bum, begging for money in the same spot every day (who really ought to
get a job!) is a slave to addictions that we can only imagine in our worst
nightmares.
Help us to remember that the old
couple walking annoyingly slow through the store aisles and blocking our
shopping progress are savoring this moment, knowing that, based on the biopsy
report she got back last week, this will be the last year that they go shopping
together.
Dear God, remind us each
day that, of all the gifts you give us, the greatest gift is love. It is not
enough to share that love with those we hold dear. Open our hearts not just to
those who are close to us, but to all humanity. Let us be slow to judge and
quick to forgive, show patience, empathy and love.
