Just As I Am


It’s harder to show compassion if we disconnect from our own wisdom and experienceperhaps rejecting some part of ourselves we think is shameful. The key to loving another is the ability to love all of ourselvesbeing flawed but fully human, whole.


O God, who makes your rain to fall and your sun to shine
on the wicked and the good, teach us to be compassionate.
Guide our efforts to become like you.


When you see the restroom cleaner, the grocery check-out clerk, or the sanitation worker, give them the kind of compliment you’d like to receive. Praise their work or thank them for it.
