A Collect to Use Money Generously

Lord God, friend to those who are willing to come to you, teach us to use our money to make friends, that when material things fail us, we will yet receive from others, and that which we have given will be returned in great measure, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who reigns in glory with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen. “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap; for the measure you give will be the measure you get back.” – Luke 6:38
