"...you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted."
Gracious God, we lift our thoughts towards you this day to give you praise and thanksgiving. Thank you for blessing us with warm clothes on cool days, comfortable beds, sustenance, the ability to create new things and the ability to create wealth.
Help us to reach out to those who lack the basics of life. Help us to be more compassionate and loving towards those who suffer from experiences that stagger the imagination. Help us to be more willing to share our blessings to help someone else.
And if our brother or sister is caught in a sin, show us the best way to restore them gently back into the faith. Guard us, lest we too get caught up in the same sin because we are subject to the same stresses and strains, weaknesses and temptation. Amen
