Thank you God for the example of the people who are struggling the most to survive. So often, people who have so much don’t recognize the incredible power of hope that is apparent in those who we might describe as having little opportunity for a better life. They surprise us when we realize that their hope for so much less than we expect is truly monumental. May their witness make us much more aware of how our blessedness requires us to serve those around us even more. May we become enablers of the spires of hope that exist around us today and everyday. Amen.
