Holy One, we want to be faithful to you, but we get caught up in the numbers. A year’s salary will only go so far. Our time gets spent just as fast as our paychecks. We look around and see “not enough” instead of rejoicing that you have given us more than enough. We hold onto what is ours for fear it will all disappear.
Bend back the fingers we have clenched tight shut around what we think is the last piece of bread or the last bit of fish. There is more left over than we can calculate.
Help us to see it.
Help us to see it all:
For all these blessings, we give you thanks and praise. Amen.
