A Collect for Spiritual Values
"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." - Luke 12:33-34 (ESV)
Lord of the heavens, whose treasure is not of material things, but of eternal and spiritual ones, give us hearts that long for spiritual values, that we would spend our lives on things that matter and receive treasure that cannot wear out, but will give true and lasting satisfaction to our souls, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
