Oh, so many lessons to learn in loving. Forgive me, if or probably when I have offended. One day, I will be made perfect, but until then, I am a work in process, the God is molding, through His Holy Spirit. God Bless You, and may his Spirit dwell richly, in us today.

Abba/Father, You are the supreme authority over all of life and creation. Although You have allowed humans to rule and govern themselves, you have a higher calling for us to serve your kingdom. Give me the wisdom to discern both. Help us to be salt and light in our political systems, and more importantly, show us how to be agents of your love to others. Forgive me when I place my hope and trust in man-made structures rather than in You. Continue to grow in me Your love that is patient, kind, does not envy or boast, is not proud, is not rude or self-seeking, not easily angered, keeps no record of wrongs, hates evil, delights in truth, always protects, trusts, hopes, and perseveres. Amen.
“Beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity.” Verse 14
“You are like a jar of river water all shaken up. What you need is to sit still long enough that the sediment can settle and the water can become clear.” – Ruth Haley Barton
