Selling out

Lent 2013 Cover   Luke 22:1-13

Question for reflection:
Judas betrayed Jesus for the love of money. How does money affect your ethical choices? How do you pay attention to what you are doing with your money? Who or what might you be selling out to that doesn’t represent your values and beliefs?

Prayer for the day:
God, it is so easy for me to let money come and go through my hands without much discernment. Help me become more aware of who I am supporting and when I may be selling out.

~ Kim Ebersole, Director of Family Life and Older Adult Ministries
