Lord, we know that simply acquiring more and more stuff isn’t where we find true joy. Forgive us for leveraging our own futures in order to have the pleasures of the present. We ask that you guide us not in being wasteful, to not be prodigals in your eyes.
We ask you Lord to help us be good managers of the talents you’ve given to us. Help us be generous and willing to share with those who we know truly need it more than us. Keep us kingdom-minded and focused on accomplishing your purposes for our lives, and let us leverage all that you have given not simply for the betterment of ourselves – but of our fellow man both now and in the days to come.
In Jesus’s name we pray, Amen.
