A Collect for November 9, 2015

“… it is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a person, but what comes out of the mouth; this defiles a person.”

O God, whose nature is love and who provided the Law in order to lead us to that love, teach us to pay attention to that which is in us and that which reveals our hearts, that we might not tithe empty obedience and self-justification, but offer ourselves to you in truth, knowing that we will find love, healing, and encouragement. We ask this in the name of your Son, who loved to the end and now reigns at your right hand, world without end. Amen.
