Caring God, we humble ourselves today by returning the bounty you first shared with us back to your care.  Without pretension or self-righteousness, we resolve to be slow to judge and ready to provide aid.  We strive to increase our commitment to being thoughtful, generous people.     Help us to be unassuming in our service but bold in our witness.  We pray in the name of the one who served you here on Earth, Jesus the Living Christ.  Amen.  Luke 18:9-14
