Heavenly Father, you long to set me free from my dependence on the world’s stuff. Set me free today, and fill me with your love. Amen.
Song for reflection: "Follow You"
Scripture reading: Matthew 19:16-22
Following Jesus is an invitation to relinquish our attachment to possessions. What possessions and things of this world are you holding on to?
What does this Scripture teach you about God’s desires for the economic dimension of our lives?
What is one way today’s Scripture is inviting you into a deeper participation in God’s generosity?
God, thank you for showering me with grace and goodness. Give me a grateful heart and generous life that follows you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Week's memory verse:
“...go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” - Matthew 19:21
