Giving What You Have

When the Spirit Moves

Fifth Sunday after Pentecost, Year B

Stewardship is not simply a once-a-year item. This week’s texts provide a perfect opportunity to talk about stewardship without following it up with a pledge card or a capital campaign. Though the impetus for the Corinthian text is a monetary collection, it could easily be shifted to sharing of gifts and offering of grace, stewarding what we have been given in a way that gives glory to God.

Offertory Prayer

God of boundless generosity, as we offer our gifts and our lives to you, help us to hear and heed your apostle Paul. We long to grow as disciples, so that we grow in generosity. The abundance we’ve been given has a purpose in your plan, that we might know the joy of sharing that abundance with those in need. We long for that vision of your kin-dom, where loving hearts bring a better balance between abundance and need. In the name of Christ, our teacher and redeemer, we pray. Amen. (2 Corinthians 8:7-15)
