Reflections: When we give and serve, it all comes back to having the right heart in the way we do it. Mother Teresa said, “Prayer in action is love, and love in action is service. Try to give unconditionally, whatever a person needs in the moment. The point is to do something, however small, and show you care through your actions by giving your time. We are all God’s children, so it is important to share his gifts. Do not worry about why problems exist in the world – just respond to people’s needs. We feel what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean, but that ocean would be less without that drop.” Check your heart when it comes to giving and serving – is there anything you need to confess to God about your attitude about giving?
Prayers: Heavenly Father, please search my heart. Rid me of any pride, or selfishness, or hypocrisy. Create in me a clean heart today Lord. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
