A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.
--Proverbs 22:1 New International Version (NIV)
My Father, teach me the value of the possessions that can neither be handled nor seen; and may I not take them away from others. Help me to keep your commandment "Thou shalt not steal," and interpret it in all its relations to life. Amen.

And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that?
--Matthew 5:47 New International Version (NIV)
Heavenly Father, I pray that you will give me a generous heart. May I not lose sight of the truth, that you have made others to have the same needs and wants that I may have. May I not through pride or egoism fail to help, and neglecting to speak, miss an opportunity to assist. May I be unselfish in friendly service. Amen.

When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him? You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor.
--Psalm 8:3-5 New International Version (NIV)
Eternal God, may I know the value of the gift of life. May I think seriously of it, and not through abuse or neglect cripple it, remembering that it is mine to sow, to grow, and to reap. I pray that I may care more for the food and clothing of my soul than I care for the food and clothing of my body. Amen.
"Through Christ and scriptures, you will find hope and redemption."
