12/16/17 Our Father, though cheered by the news of the day, keep us humble and responsible. Remind us that our pursuit of world peace involves others, that boasting and conceit accomplish little – that we alone are not sufficient- that your Grace is needed and welcomed. Amen
I am reminded, once more, there is nothing new under the sun. Mankind has been living in a state where we must pursue peace for a long time.
Man has always boasted and been conceited for individual accomplishments.
Did this get written yesterday? No year is given, but it sounds familiar.
On our own we can accomplish nothing, or, we fail to accomplish, or simply, we fail.
A hard pill to swallow, but easily remedied when we put others first and rely on your Grace to guide and accompany us on this earthly walk to accomplish Your will, not mine.
