"Why this waste?"
"For you have the poor with you always, but Me you do not have always..."
"One of you will betray Me..."
Oh God, forgive us for thinking that doing good is the same as worshiping You- it can be, but it isn't always. Teach us how to love You and love others. May we focus on You and Your ways- not our own grand ideas of missions. May we seek to walk with You and minister everywhere we are. And may that be enough.
Forgive us when our actions betray You. When we love our money, ease, status, or stuff more than we love You- forgive us and change us! Lead us to the cross this week- apply the knife of the cross to all of our old self. Make us more like You!
