Giving causes You great happiness.
Thank you for gladly desiring to give us the Kingdom of Heaven.
Forgive us for doubting Your generous heart.
We battle unbelief and even sweat the small stuff.
Fears and anxieties about temporal things consume us:
What we eat, what we drink, what we wear.
How we look, where we live and how much we make.
Forgive us for our hot pursuit of other things
More than You and Your kingdom.
Too often we live as if we are owners and not stewards.
Too often our sense of identity
comes from what we do instead of to whom we belong.
We are Your servants and You are our master.
Have mercy upon us and pardon us in Jesus’ name, AMEN.
