Key verse for today: Proverbs 30:8b-9. Don’t give me either poverty or wealth; give me just the food I need. Or I’ll be full and deny you, and say, “Who is the LORD?” Or I’ll be poor and steal, and dishonor my God’s name.
Moderation in all things.

We pray this in the prayer Jesus taught us: "Give us this day our daily bread."
