2 Corinthians 8

Father God,
Your generosity knows no limit,
Your grace is sufficient for all:
You teach us, motivate us,
to learn generosity towards others.

We see the generous acts of our Lord Jesus:
he was rich beyond the wealth of any human,
he saw the need of all people
and for us he became poor,
poor to the point of suffering,
poor to the point of death on the cross.
And it took nothing less that this
to deliver us from sin, bondage and death.

By the poverty of our saviour
we became rich beyond counting.

Through Jesus Christ,
our gifts, great and small
are acceptable to you
you are able to make good use of them.

Thanks be to you, Jesus our Lord.

Amen.
