A Blessing

Posted: September 30, 2008 in blessings, injustice, Jesus, justice, poverty

I came across this great blessing – a challenge really from one of my college professors facebook notes. I liked it so much that I had to share it with those who read this blog.

May God bless you with discomfort
at easy answers, half truths, and superficial relationships
so that you may live deep within your heart.

May God bless you with anger
at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people
so that you may work for justice, freedom and peace.

May God bless you with tears
to shed for those who suffer pain, rejection, hunger and war
so that you may reach out your hand to comfort them and
to turn their pain into joy.

May God bless you with enough foolishness
to believe that you can make a difference in the world
so that you can do what others claim cannot be done
to bring justice and kindness to all our children and the poor.

Amen.
