Receiving and Giving Comfort

Good Morning! I invite you to consider these WordsWorth Remembering from Dr. John Henry Jowett:

"God does not comfort us to make us comfortable only, but to make us comforters."

My prayer, O Living God, is this:

Today, we thank you for the gift of empathy, the ability to transform our own suffering into a deeper understanding of the suffering of others. We ask for your comfort. We ask for your healing. We receive these blessings today not only for ourselves, but also to increase our ability to bring comfort and healing to others. Amen.

I hope you will find a blessing in this day for you.
