A Collect to See All as God’s Gift

Generous giver, who has provided for us all that we need, remind us that all we receive from you is a gift and that we have earned nothing that you have given. Keep us from believing we are higher or more deserving than we are, that in humility we would remain close to you for our lives, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen. “So you also, when you have done all that you were ordered to do, say, ‘We are worthless slaves; we have done only what we ought to have done!’” – Luke 17:10
