Machnamh / Reflection

May the God of new beginnings
lead us forward this day.
May the God who brought us new life in Christ fill us with resurrection joy this day.
May the God who abides within us be revealed to all we meet this day.
May the God who consoles and protects us soothe any heartache this day.
May the God who desires abundance of life for all creation renew our spirits this day.

Jesus accepted the leper just as he was. Acceptance is the answer to rejection. It is one of the loveliest things that can happen to us. When people accept us they give us a feeling that we are worthwhile. Each of us longs to be accepted for what we are. It is the love and acceptance of others that makes us the unique persons that we are. When we are accepted only for work we do, then we are not unique, for others can do the same work perhaps even better than we can. But when we are accepted for who we are, then we become unique and irreplacable, and are able to realise our full potential.
