Wisdom bless us and lead us out of our temptations to stay too comfortable and too safe, those temptations that take us away from fulfilling our riskier faithful promises. Bless us and help us live more open heartedly, generously, and kindly, each and every day. So many of us struggle with suspicion, especially of those different from ourselves. Wisdom help us reach past our suspicions and open our hearts in wonderment once again. In risking open-heartedness may we be joyfully surprised and be a joyful surprise to others. So many of us struggle to imagine how we can add to the good or that we can do any more than what we do now. Wisdom help us give all we can give for goodness' sake, in encouraging one another and appreciating each other's gifts for goodness and in doing together far more than we can do alone. Bless us and embolden us to turn away from the temptations that lead us away from living open-heartedly and fulfilling our riskier faithful promises. Wisdom help us rejoice in and give thanks for this life, now and all our days. Amen.
