Forgive us when we view your love
as a pie with finite substance.
Forgive us when we will not share
our love for fear of losing out.
Forgive us when we begrudge another
their joy, their fortune, their love.
Forgives us, God, for placing limits
on what is not ours to bestow.
Hear God say, ‘I am generous;
I will give you all the same.’
So take that love and see the face
of God in all to whom God gives.
