A Collect for Humility
Lord and Master of all, by whose command the universe was created, keep us from entitlement and believing we deserve reward. Keep our hearts humble, knowing that we serve the great king of all creation by whose word we receive life and nourishment, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit in glory forever. Amen.
'"Who among you would say to your slave who has just come in from plowing or tending sheep in the field, 'Come here at once and take your place at the table'? Would you not rather say to him, 'Prepare supper for me, put on your apron and serve me while I eat and drink; later you may eat and drink'? Do you thank the slave for doing what was commanded?"' - Luke 17:7-9
