— Deuteronomy 8:18
Generous Father, forgive me for my forgetfulness and occasional stingyness. In my heart, I know I don’t deserve all the good things you have poured into my life. Sometimes, however, I find myself thinking that I’ve earned them because I work hard and deserve them. Use your Spirit to forge in me a heart like Jesus’ heart. Our Lord did deserve everything good and yet gave it all up to come to earth and give me the greatest gift imaginable — the gift of your salvation! Thank you so much for this gift of grace and the many other undeserved gifts you have lavished on me. In Jesus’ name, I thank and praise you. Amen.
