Prayer of the Day
O God, you resist those who are proud and give grace to those who are humble. Give us the humility of your Son, that we may embody the generosity of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
"God’s Status Quo"
Luke 14: 1, 7-14
There is a sense in Luke/Acts that no individual can live the "blessed" life as long as there are some people who are suffering and poor and hungry and sick. The ideal situation presented in Acts 4:34 is that there will be no needy among us. That can only happen when the wealthy are willing to share with the needy. Wealth and position are only a blessing when shared and used for the betterment of humanity.
