A Collect to Value Divine Things
God of the spiritual and material, ruler of all things seen and unseen, we find it easy to value those things that are here in front of us, yet miss the banquet you have prepared. Turn our hearts to see and long for the feast you offer, that we would seek after divine treasure, trusting that the earthly things we need will be given, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
"Again he sent other slaves, saying, 'Tell those who have been invited: Look, I have prepared my dinner, my oxen and my fat calves have been slaughtered, and everything is ready; come to the wedding banquet.' But they made light of it and went away, one to his farm, another to his business, while the rest seized his slaves, mistreated them, and killed them." - Matthew 22:4-6
