The Gift of Wealth
Call to Worship
The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein,
for he has founded it upon the seas and established it upon the rivers.
Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place?
He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false and does not swear deceitfully.
He will receive blessing from the Lord and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
Confession of Sin
No one can serve two masters.
Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other.
You cannot serve both God and money.
Lord, we confess that you are good and your gifts are good.
Help us to think rightly about money and possessions;
Keep us free from greed and the love of money.
Father, we know that you are rich beyond measure, owning all things, yet you share freely with us.
As your children, help us to be generous with what we have.
Holy Spirit, would you encourage our hearts to be righteous in our living. Amen.
Assurance of Pardon
Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
Sell your possessions, and give to the needy.
Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old,
with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys.
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Praise be to God who has clothed us with more beauty than the lilies
And who has fed us better the birds
And who has given us the gift of salvation
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you as you go.
Peace be with you all.
2 Corinthians 13:14
