We reap the harvest and are sustained by the earths’ bounty. We accept your generosity. Why, then, do we not serve you more? Why do we not serve others more? Help us, dear Lord, to not be afraid to give of ourselves, help us make time for service, and guide us in all that we do. We ask in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Hear the good news! Who is in a position to condemn? Only Christ, and Christ died for us, Christ rose for us, Christ reigns in power for us, Christ prays for us.
