Here are 3 reasons (not exhaustive) to be wary of the prayer that begins, "Thank you that I am not like..."
- It might not be true
- It forgets our connectedness and interdependence
- It leaves no room for God's love of you (and the other) to be the most important thing about you, which is supposed to be the beginning of love without fear.
Where have you experienced the truth of any of these 3 observations? What would you add to the list? When have you known and lived out of God's ocean deep love for you and the other?
