Let me sow love

Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love. Francis of Assisi

prayer of st francis

This is an excerpt from the Prayer of St Francis. This is one of my favorites. We are becoming so divided. People are choosing to hate anyone who is different from them. We don’t spend any time getting to know the person. If we did we would probably change our minds. This hatred is so destructive. If it continues it will tear us all apart. I am sure that God weeps. Each of us must take it upon ourselves to make a change. We only have control over ourselves. Change can come one person at a time. Hatred can turn to love.

Loving God, how you must look down in distress at our anger and hatred. Help us to to sow love. AMEN
