Consider Your Call

Somos del Señor

Fourth Sunday after the Epiphany, Year A

The fools that we are called to be does not diminish us as people, but rather reminds us of the source of our strength and our wisdom. If we are able to move our egos out of the way and truly focus on the unity of the body and the centrality of the call, it just might be possible to be in mission together as the church of Jesus Christ.

Offertory Prayer

Holy God, as we bring our tithes and offerings to your altar, we confess that many of us have longed to be “wise with money” as the world understands it – accumulating and building our balances and portfolios. The apostle Paul has called us to live in ways that often seem foolish to the world, and we know that means being seen as extravagant in generosity and reckless in our compassion. Help us on the journey to loosen our grip on our money and possessions and live the compassion to which your Son has called us. In his name, we pray. Amen. (1 Corinthians 1:18-31)

Oraciones para ofrendar

Santo Dios, al presentar nuestros diezmos y ofrendas ante ti, confesamos que muchos de nosotros hemos tratado de administrar nuestras finanzas como el mundo lo exige, hemos tratado de acumular nuestros ahorros y crecer en nuestras carreras. El apóstol Pablo nos ha llamado a vivir de maneras que a menudo parecen insensatas al mundo, y sabemos que eso significa ser vistos como demasiado generosos e imprudentes en nuestra compasión. Ayúdanos a desprendernos de las posesiones materiales y a mostrar compasión de la manera que tu Hijo nos ha enseñado. En su nombre, oramos. Amen. (1 Corintios 1:18-31)
