The world needs love!! An open hand ready to help and ready to love cannot be furled in a fist of rage! Love drives out hate! Martin Luther King Jr. said that. How soon we forget and think that objects of hate fuel us when it is our minds and hearts that are furled around previous hurt.
Open our hearts, minds and hands, Lord so we may be ready to help and hug those who are hurting.
