Daily Word for Lenten Season - March 2


"Poor"

Is being "poor" ever a good thing? It seems many who are poor struggle to survive and yet many who are poor seem to have the richest life. Jesus says in Luke “yours is the kingdom of God.” Perhaps those who are poor are not distracted from material accumulation, that isn’t an option for them. Perhaps we can learn from those less fortunate than we are. Perhaps they are closer to the gifts of God because they have less to get in the way.

Prayer: Lord, help us to share with those in need, but also help us to learn from them. Help us to learn what is truly of value in this life that the kingdom of God will also be ours. Amen.

Daily Word for Lenten Season - March 1


“Listen”

Listen. Before we talk we have to learn to listen. Yet how can we teach others to listen by talking. Can we, perhaps, show people how to listen? If we were models of listening maybe we won’t need to talk so much. What do you hear from God when you listen? 

Prayer: Lord, help me to learn to listen, to your world, to others, to myself, and most importantly to you. Amen.

Daily Word for Lenten Season - February 29


“Treasure”

Something that is precious. Something that we would hold close to our heart. Is Jesus this to us? Is anyone here on earth that to us? This is who we are to God.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for holding us close to your heart. Help us to be grateful for being precious to you. Help us to treasure others as we are treasured by you. Amen.
