What We Share

Often, we focus too much on what makes us different. In this passage, though, the wise one suggests we look at what we share in common: that we all come from the same Creator and source of life.

Read Proverbs 22:1-2, 8-9, 22-23.

Think about the people you care about and enjoy being around. What do you share in common with them? What do you appreciate about them?

Now think about the people with whom you struggle. Try to think of something you might have in common with them and something you can appreciate about them.

Offer a prayer, thanking God for the gift of all of God’s children – for the ways they bless us and for the ways they stretch our capacity to love.
