Choose Love

Steve Matthews

God, we know that fear is easy and love is hard.
          Teach us to choose your love anyway.
When we are scared of the future, show us how to move forward one step at a time.
          Teach us to choose your love anyway.
When we feel betrayed and want to give up, keep us from hardening our hearts.
          Teach us to choose your love anyway.
When we see someone being mistreated, and we are afraid of ridicule if we support them,
          Teach us to choose your love anyway.
When we see violence in our schools and communities, empower us to make a difference together.
          Teach us to choose your love anyway.
In the face of fear, help us not to choose revenge, cowardice, or inaction. Instead, . . .
          Teach us to choose your love anyway.
In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
