A Collect to Recognize our Limits
God of wisdom, who desires that we balance grace with truth, give us wisdom to know our limitations, that we would love well, but still be able to say no when we do not have enough to give, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who loved us to the end and sat down at your right hand in the Holy Spirit. Amen.
"The foolish said to the wise, 'Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.' But the wise replied, 'No! there will not be enough for you and for us; you had better go to the dealers and buy some for yourselves.'" - Matthew 25:8-9
