Psalter: Psalm 130
Old Testament: 1 Samuel 20:1-25
Epistle: 2 Corinthians 8:1-7
Jesus, my Savior, you teach us that good fruit is produced from a good tree. Likewise, kindness flows not from a heart that is made of stone, but from a new heart that is given to us through your spirit. Lord, teach us to be kind in heart, so that love, grace, and charity flow forth like a river. Give us a generosity that reflects your own, through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
