The Courage to Be

For Each Day

Father,

Jesus was never afraid to be Himself. We, broken creatures, often fear rejection, hatred, and conflict. We hide our natural light; we darken the windows of our souls. We pretend to be what we are not so that others will like us. We duck from the responsibility of living our own lives as You have ordained them.

Give us courage to be as unique as You call us to be. Show us, in the example of our Christ, how to put on the plain garments of faith and to walk boldly. Give us the strength to accept others as You have made them.
