I Samuel: "Appoint a king for us, the people said; we want to be just like every other nation!" Be careful what you ask for. They forgot that, as a people chosen and gifted, they were very much unlike every other nation. That 's what made them special. Lord, help me to recall that when I compare myself to others I may lose sight of my own uniqueness, my own giftedness, and my own unique relationship with You, the Lord of my life. Rather, Lord, may my prayer be, "Lead me to be the best version of me that I can be, with the gifts you gave me and the Grace that nourishes me."
Msgr. William J. King
