Scripture for the day is Proverbs 13:23, 18:23

An unplowed field produces food for the poor,
    but injustice sweeps it away.

The poor plead for mercy,
    but the rich answer harshly.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Father my heart wants to take full credit for my financial standing and security. Open my eyes to see that my bank account – if there is anything in it at all – is there only through your manifold gifts. Let my generosity to the poor be as unstinting and manifold as your generosity to me. Amen.
