God has given us so much—life, forgiveness, care of the earth and possessions. How can we respond to God’s grace? We can do so through boldly caring for others.
Caring can be viewed through various lenses such as acts of sacrifice, kindness and financial stewardship. These all demonstrate our call to, and enormous capacity for, caring for others in our community of faith.
Loving God, help me to show your love and caring to others in all I do. Teach me to be kind and forgiving to others as you are kind and forgiving to me. Let me embody caring as part of my stewardship, rejoicing in all that I have been blessed with through your grace. Amen.
