Take My Pillow

More lessons from a toddler.

As I was putting Hosea to bed a few nights ago he realized that I didn’t have a pillow while I was snuggling him in his bed. He looked over at me and said, “Daddy, where’s your pillow? You don’t have one, so you can have mine.”

It is our responsibility as Christians to take stock of a situation, assess our resources, and share. I think it is an understatement to say that everyone has something to offer.  Whether it’s the only pillow, or something far more complex.

When we assess a situation of inequality we have the opportunity to find other people who we can build healthy, sustainable relationships with.  Remembering through this process that both sides of the partnership have some kind of resource to offer.

May we go forward as people of generosity, people who freely offer our only pillow.  May we be a people of love.
