Finally, brethren, farewell. Mend your ways, heed my appeal, agree with one another, live in peace and the God of love and peace will be with you.
--2 Corinthians 13:11 Revised Standard
Lord God, I earnestly ask you to show me if I may be cramping the happiness in another's life by forcing in my selfishness and demands. May I understand that perfect gifts are those that come through loving sacrifice. Make me ashamed to ask for what I refuse or prefer not to give. Amen.
