We have withheld from you, O God, our deepest selves, choosing only to offer that which we see as marketable or usable, when we know you desire the fullness of our beings. We fail to honor you and the unique gifts you have given us by insisting that one is better than the other. Grant us grace, that we may accept one another and give freely of ourselves to the glory of your kingdom. Renew our minds, and change our ways, they they become your ways in the fullness of your wisdom. Help us to see ourselves and each other as we truly are, as you see us, rather than the puffed up vision we resort to often. Amen.
