O God

O God, it is easy to love the whole world, but hard to love the person one works next to;
O God, it is easy to campaign for world peace, but hard to contribute to the peace within my own home;
O God, it is easy to be fascinated with some new truth, and miss you in the thing I have known so long;
O God, it is easy to share my home and possessions with people I like. Teach me how to be generous toward others
Enable me today to say something or do something that will make a difference to the discouraged, to the inexperienced, to the despairing.
 Let no selfish concern with my own affairs shut me off from any today. For your love’s sake. Amen
