Thought for the day, Wednesday 15th September

“There are barriers which divide the righteous and the unrighteous. But we know that each of us is both. There is within us the impulse to be generous, kind, worthy, and decent. And there is within us the impulse to be cruel, mean-spirited, and vengeful. Help us not to see people, ourselves included, as either one thing nor the other, but to recognise that we are all complex and imperfect creatures, and that acknowledging the fullness of our humanity shared with all beings is one way to break down the walls.”
David Usher, quoted in Fragments of Holiness for Daily Reflection
