Look full into thy spirit's self,
The world of mystery scan;
What if thy way to faith in God
Should lie through faith in man?
Blessed are they who have the gift of making friends, for it is one of God's best gifts. It involves many things, but above all, the power of going out of oneself and seeing and appreciating whatever is noble and loving in another.
Be perfected; be comforted; be of the same mind; live in peace: and the God of love and peace shall be with you.
—2 Corinthians 13. 11.
Lord God, I earnestly entreat thee 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.
