Inspiring God, 

You show us your love every day. 

Thank you for the people in our lives who care for us, listen to us, and treat us with respect. Help us to appreciate that this love is a gift, and we are called to share it with others. 

Give us the courage to go forth as Jesus did, sharing your love with people who are excluded, ignored, or in need. Help us to recognize that you speak to us through them.
