Lord Jesus Christ, help me to see what it is that joins us together, not what separates. For when we see only what it is that makes us different, we too often become aware of what is wrong with others. We see only their faults and weaknesses, interpreting their actions as flowing from malice or hatred rather than fear. Even when confronted with evil, Lord, You forgave us and sacrificed Yourself rather than sought revenge. Teach us to do the same by the power of Your Spirit. We ask this through Your mighty name. Amen.
