An old friend of mine used to say with a smile that you never know what’s going to happen when you invite the Holy Spirit in. But what do we think might happen if we ask the Holy Spirit to guide our thinking and speaking?
Let’s take a few guesses.
Would we speak out more persistently for peace and justice in our world? Would we act and advocate even more fervently to end human trafficking? Would we truly love and serve our neighbors as ourselves–all our neighbors, including those whose grandparents spoke a different language than ours did, whose skin is a different color than our own, who think differently about things than we do?
Wouldn’t that be amazing! That’s how we’d know it was the work of the Holy Spirit.
