SECOND SUNDAY IN LENT – A Thought

based on Mark 8:27-38 (today’s Gospel)

It’s human nature to put our wants and needs ahead of others’ wants and needs.  Jesus showed us a new and better way:  Become great by serving others.  God provides us with what it takes to do this – our lives and abilities, the world in which we live, resources, opportunities, etc.  When we give our tithes and offerings faithfully, and use our time and gifts to honor God by serving others, we help communicate God’s love.    –– Pinnacle Board of Stewardship
