Privilege : a special right, advantage, or immunity granted or available only to a particular person or group of people.
I wonder through my life as a victim of privilege.
I take for granted all the blessings bestowed on me; not counting them but expecting them.
I belong to a group of privilege.
Never worry about my housing, my child’s schooling, my next meal.
I become immune to the plight of the less fortunate; the immigrant, the prisoner, the sick and frail.
I question my privileged state.
I forget to honor the One who made all the difference in my life.
I think myself above others.
Privileged, I believe that I deserve my place in society.
I forget the commands of God: Love the least of these.
Open your hearts to the immigrant and less fortunate.
If I am to be a victim of privilege no more; I take to heart the message above. I count my blessings and find ways to use my privilege to help others and further God’s kingdom.
