Tuesday of the Twenty-second Week in Ordinary Time

The Lord is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and of great kindness. The Lord is good to all and compassionate toward all his works. (PSALM 145: 8-9)

It is incredibly rewarding to work for a health care ministry. No matter where you are within Avera, you see and experience the Lord’s great kindness and compassion each day. In fact, even more than seeing it, we deliver it! Members of the Avera team provide compassion, hospitality and stewardship as part of our daily work and our value system.

We must all strive to live each day in way that is pleasing to the Lord. Since this is part of our work, we must work to extend the same values throughout our lives. Call it living the Avera way.

Heavenly Father,

everything we have and do comes from and through You.

Help us to be gracious and kind, good and compassionate,

and use our talents to serve You.

These values guide our relationships with those around us

and make us disciples of Your word. Amen.

Bob Sutton
Regional President and CEO, Avera St. Mary's Hospital
