Prayer for the day:
Jesus, we lose perspective, and for this we ask forgiveness. Sometimes we choose ignorance, but more often we are just lazy. Help us to avoid the temptation of justifying our selfishness. Help us to be humble as we walk with you and with others
Question for reflection:
Reflect on a time when someone with less than you was more grateful than you. What did the situation help you to understand about the Gospel of Good News? What questions did the situation leave in your heart?
~ Becky Ullom-Naugle, Director for Youth and Young Adult Ministries
