A Collect for Generosity
God of all, whose eyes are on even the sparrow, teach us to see and attend to those in need, that we might not give only to those who can repay, but, like you, we would see those who are unable to repay and thereby spread your compassion to a needy world, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who gave of himself completely and sat down beside you and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
'Whoever welcomes a prophet in the name of a prophet will receive a prophet's reward; and whoever welcomes a righteous person in the name of a righteous person will receive the reward of the righteous; and whoever gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones in the name of a disciple -- truly I tell you, none of these will lose their reward.' - Matthew 10:41-42
