Prayer of Confession

Jesus, you set before us the way of wisdom: to care for the poor, feed the hungry, share instead of hoard our possessions, but it is a way that is counter to the ways of the world. We consider it wise and prudent to take care of ourselves first, to accumulate possessions, and to hoard and plan and secure our lives through those possessions. You call such behavior foolish. Forgive us, Lord, when such foolishness becomes the focus of our lives. Help us become wise in your ways and with your wisdom. AMEN
