The Blessed
 
Blessed are the unemployed, for they must depend upon God.

Blessed are those who've lost job titles and status, for God will fill the void.

Blessed are the day labors, for they will find security in God.

Blessed are the overworked parents who hunger and thirst for family friendly policies, for they will be satisfied.

Blessed are those who are kind to their employees, for they will be shown kindness.

Blessed are those who speak up for workers who are undocumented, for they will see God.

Blessed are those who stay away from office politics, for they will be called workers of God.

Blessed are those who are denied promotions due to their color, gender or sexual orientation, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are you when your co-workers make fun of you, gossip about you and don’t ask you out to lunch, because of your relationship with God.



Holy Spirit, help us see the blessedness of our work struggles.
