October 24 – Noon


“‘When you reap the harvest of your land, do not reap to the very edges of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest. Leave them for the poor and for the foreigner residing among you. I am the Lord your God.’”

(Leviticus 23:22)


Dear God,

You have instructed us to leave the corners of our fields for the poor and the stranger, so that they may have something to eat. Help me to have a heart of compassion and generosity towards those in need around me. Open my eyes to see the opportunities to reach out and bless others, and give me the courage to act on them. May I not become selfish or indifferent, but instead be ready and willing to share what I have with those who are less fortunate.

Help me to be a vessel of Your love and provision in the lives of those who are struggling. Give me wisdom and discernment to know how best to help, and the resources to do so. Remind me that everything I have is ultimately Yours, and prompt me to use it for the benefit of others. Thank You for Your constant care and provision in my own life, and help me to extend that same care to those around me.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
