FOOD FOR THOUGHT
God, your mercy extends over us in ways unimaginable. Even on the cross, Jesus, you ask God to forgive those who are doing a heinous and evil act to you. Your forgiveness is what draws us to change in our lives. So, move us now into a new understanding of what it means to bear fruit in your kingdom. Transform our hearts, so that we might seek first that kingdom. We desire to be generous with others as you have been generous to us. We thank you now that you are Emmanuel, God with us, and that you will aid us in this journey. In Jesus name, Amen.
