Prayer for the Day:
It’s hard, Lord, to not seek praise for something great we have done. Teach us to do what we can with the gifts you have given us, love others, and be humble about it. Amen.
Question for reflection:
Why do we seek recognition for great things we do? Why can’t we just go on doing them? What holds us back? And why can’t we overcome this?
~ Rachel Witkovsky, Coordinator of 2012 Workcamp Ministry
