A Collect to Live Not for Ourselves Alone

Almighty God, creator of all things and source of all that was and is and is to come, teach us to live in honor of you and do all things in love and service to all, that we would not fall into selfish thinking and self-serving ways but be ever connected to you and your beloved children, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who gave himself for our sake and was exalted to the highest place at your side in the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘We do not live to ourselves, and we do not die to ourselves.’ – Rom. 14:7
