over the nations. Psalm 22:28

Some give freely, yet grow all the richer; others withhold what is due, and only suffer want. Proverbs 11:24
Paul said, “In all this I have given you an example that by such work we must support the weak, remembering the words of the Lord Jesus, for he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” Acts 20:35
Lord, you gave your all for humanity; teach us to give sacrificially, so that the message of hope and reconciliation can reach all peoples. Amen.
