Thoughts and a Prayer

“The mystery that has been hidden through the ages… which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” – Colossians 1:26a, 27b

Giver of life, source of freedom and assurance, we are reminded by the psalmist that yours is “the earth and its fullness; the world and those who dwell in it.” From your hand we have received all we have, and are, and can be. Help us to use your gifts wisely and teach us to share them generously. May your love in Christ show in us for others. Remind us that in all we face nothing can separate us from your grace and blessing but our own betrayal. Amen.

“Complete possession is proved only by giving. All you are unable to give possesses you.” – Andre Gide
