Monday (Meditation: Colossians 3:12-14)
God, I work with others all day long, and at the end of the day, I go home. At work, though, I seldom think about the personal lives of those with whom I work. God, forgive me when I see them just as co-workers because I don't want to be treated that way. Help us to care about each other as persons. In Jesus' name. Amen.
Tuesday (Meditation: I John 4:11-12)
God, show me how to love You more -- myself less. Help me to praise You more -- myself less. Help me to love more those who work alongside me -- myself less. Help me to be more aware of their feelings -- mine less. Help me to serve others more -- myself less. For Jesus' sake. Amen
Wednesday (Meditation: I Thessalonians 5:12-13)
God, thank you for the people around me who work long hours . . . who meet challenges head-on . . . who care about their work . . . who care about
those whom they serve . . . and who care about each other. God, bless our work together, as we try to serve others, and serve You. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
Thursday (Meditation: John 13:12-17)
When Jesus ate with His disciples, He poured water in a basin, took a towel, knelt beside each one, and quietly washed his feet. Even as He faced an
agonizing death, the Suffering Servant showed them again how much He loved them by humbling Himself to serve them one by one. God, make me aware of the needs of others, and strengthen me to serve them. In Jesus' name. Amen.
Friday (Meditation: I John 4:19)
God, my relationships with others reflect my relationship with You. When I know that You love me and accept me, I am free to love and accept others.
When I know that I am a child of God, I am free to love others as brothers and sisters. Thank You for Your abiding love -- may it be seen in my relationship with others. In Jesus' name. Amen.
