Abundance

November 23, 2014

But the meek shall inherit the earth, and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace” (Psalm 37: 11).

Ours is a nation that has been richly blessed. Walk into any supermarket. The variety of apples alone is staggering. Fujis, Romes, MacIntoshes, Granny Smiths, Cortlands, Sonyas, Royal Galas, and Golden Delicious – they line up, row upon row.

Next come the pears – Boscs, Comices, Forelles, Bartletts, and Anjous.

Fresh peaches and tree ripened plums vie with imported apricots and navel oranges the size of softballs, for our attention. Persian cucumbers rest next to bell and jalapeno peppers. Tomatoes range in size from beefsteak to cherry and Compari.

Can we not manage to share this abundance? Can we not manage to see our own differences as assets?

May God give us generous hearts. May we all, black or white, MacIntosh or Rome, red, yellow or brown, find a way to live together in peace.
