Confession

Loving God, everything you do is rooted in your love for us. We confess that we have not consistently loved you first. Our love has turned inward and we have sought to meet our own needs and desires first. Our hearts have been cold at times, and we have not loved you and others as you have commanded. Forgive us, and fill us with your perfect love that overflows to others and never runs out. Amen.
