Evil

Evil

Acknowledge that the LORD is God! He made us, and we are his. We are his people, the sheep of his pasture (Psalm 100:3; NLT).

They kept demanding an answer, so he [Jesus] stood up again and said, “All right, but let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!” (John 8:7; NLT).

“How can you think of saying, ‘Friend, let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,’ when you can’t see past the log in your own eye? Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend’s eye” (Luke 6 42; NLT).


Lord,
I’m sorry for all the evil
We, your people, inflict on
Those weaker than ourselves.

I pray for an end
To our boundless capacity for
Judgement and criticism,
Prejudice and discrimination,
Hatred and brutality.

May we all learn to live
In love and peace together –
At last.

In Jesus’ name,
Amen.
