A Collect to Live Well

Lord God, whose being is light and whose nature is goodness, teach us to live honorably, doing good while we still have the opportunity, that we would turn away from hurtful and uncontrolled behavior to follow in your footsteps of love and goodness in the world, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen. ‘…let us live honorably as in the day, not in reveling and drunkenness, not in debauchery and licentiousness, not in quarreling and jealousy.’ – Rom. 13:13
