The Christian trusts God to provide. The Prayer of the Day summarizes the Sunday: God reveals his mighty power chiefly in showing mercy and kindness.
God feeds hungry mouths and hungry souls with his gifts of grace. When we bring our problems to Jesus, he will richly supply all we need.
The Scriptures mandate: "Celebrate the Feast of Harvest with the firstfruits of the crops you sow in your field." (Exodus 23:16) From the harvest of food for the body to the harvest of souls for salvation, today and everyday we give thanks for all that our gracious Lord provides.
