Pass It On

May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.


Everyone is born with unique gifts and deserving of deep love. Everyone has something to offer their small part of the world that no one else can, bringing new realities into being. But it takes encouragement and courage to offer your gifts to the world. Often, they seem so small, so limited.

That’s where the second part of this benediction comes in…

Pass on the love that has been given to you. If you haven’t been loved as deeply and broadly as you deserve (and you do deserve such love!), let God’s infinite love fill your heart and pass that on. Gifts alone aren’t enough; gifts offered in love are. 

It’s one of the great mysteries of life, and one of the most obvious. It’s amazing how easy it is to overlook.

    It is difficult for me to believe I deserve to be loved. For me it is like thinking I deserve grace. I regularly thank God that I don’t get what I deserve.

      Isn’t it odd that we can see others as deserving of love, but cannot always see it in ourselves. You, my friend, deserve love! peace, Johnna
