May God Bless You With Foolishness

May God bless you with discomfort

at easy answers, half truths, superficial relationships,

so that you will live deeply and truly.


May God bless you with anger

at injustice, oppression and exploitation of people

so that you will work for justice, equality and peace.


May God bless you with tears to shed

for those who suffer from pain, rejection, starvation and war,

so that you will reach out your hand to comfort them and change their pain into joy.


And may God bless you with foolishness

the foolishness of love, the foolishness of the cross,

the foolishness of forgiveness and grace,

and the foolishness of big beautiful ideas,

so that in Chirst, you do the things which others tell you cannot be done.
