“May I love You, God, with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength, and love others as myself (Matt 22:37-39). Let me not judge anyone, but celebrate the diversity of human life. I choose to look at what’s inside a person’s heart, as You do, rather than the outward appearance, as the world does (1 Sam 16:7). Remind me daily that love is patient and kind. It does not envy or boast, and is not proud. Love honors others, it is not self-seeking or easily angered, and it keeps no record of wrongs. Love always protects, trusts, hopes, and perseveres. Love never fails (1 Cor 13). Let my home be a place of peace and love, where everyone feels comfortable and welcome.
