Every day God

Every day God,
your beloved child Jesus Christ
found in the currency of the times
and in the husbandry of the place
ways to speak of you
and to teach of your love
to those around;
the widow’s mite,
the cash points in the temple yard,
the emperor who provided coins
but the God who created all;
and in the care of the land,
in crops and furrows,
in the managing of vineyards
and the hiring of labour,
he showed the truths of God
and his care for all creatures.
Bless us as we gather
that we deal wisely with what we have
and apply it appropriately to what we do,
to the glory of your name;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
