Go out into the world in peace.
Be of good courage;
Hold fast to what is good;
Never return evil for evil, but overcome evil with good.
Strengthen the timid.
Support the weak.
Help the needy.
Love, serve, and witness to the Lord Jesus,
rejoicing in the power of the Holy Spirit.
And may the blessing of Almighty God,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
rest on you and remain with you forever.
—"A Blessing" from The Preacher's Notebook: The Collected Quotes, Illustrations, and Prayers of John Stott
