Today’s Readings

“Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.”
– Psalm 37:4

As we continue to be mindful of fair trade this week, ask yourself, “How am I an impartial participant in my school or workplace?” Supporting our family and community is a vital part of living a fair lifestyle. But is “being fair” enough? This week, challenge yourself to give more … of your participation, listening, affection, smiles … to give more of yourself. While we await the Lord, we await a fair and just world as well.

Gracious God, make known your desires through our prayer. Amen.

Act: Learn about fair trade chocolate and the lives of cocoa farmers.
