Prayer for the Day:
What a joy it is, O God, to know that your grace is boundless, even as I confess my many weaknesses. Teach me to remember those weaknesses as I minister to others, so that your grace is reflected through me.
Question for reflection:
We talk a lot about discerning our spiritual gifts; is it not just as important to claim our weaknesses, places we have been broken? How might you show grace to others who are broken in those same fragile places?
