A Collect to Do Good for Good’s Sake

Lord Jesus, who is full to abundance with love for your people, help us to not merely do good with the expectation of being repaid, but teach us to truly do good to others out of an abundance of love and a desire that people would be blessed as you have blessed us, through you who is alive and reigns forever in glory with the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘He said also to the one who had invited him, “When you give a luncheon or a dinner, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors, in case they may invite you in return, and you would be repaid.”‘ – Luke 14:12
