Daily reading: 14 May

Something to read
‘I know the plans I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope.’
- Jeremiah 29:11.
A special series of Daily Bible Readings
It's the beginning of Christian Aid Week 2023. During this week, we will use the Daily Bible Reading space to invite you to reflect on our work in Malawi and to discern connections between that work and a short passage of scripture. Our readings will be shorter than usual. We hope that this will give you time to explore our Christian Aid Week resources to help shape your daily prayers.
Today's passage from Jeremiah speaks of the plans God has for us. Plans 'to give you a future with hope'.

Reflect on what you can do to be part of God's plans. How could you serve God? How could you help open up 'a future with hope' for others?
Pray for Jen, her family and her community.
