Prayer: Dear God, we find hope and comfort in your Word over and over. Thank you for your care as we trust in you. Amen
Reading: Luke 6: 17-26 (Click to read text)
Stop and GROW: After reading the text, discuss/ponder the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America's Book of Faith questions, which are part of Camp Mount Luther's GROW Time with campers.
QUESTION 1: What scares, confuses, challenges, or doesn’t make sense to me in this text?
QUESTION 2: What delights me in this text or is my favorite part of the story?
QUESTION 3: What stories or memories does this text stir in me?
QUESTION 4: What is God up to in this text?
Reflection: As part of our catechism learning we were required to memorize the Beatitudes from Matthew 5. The verses in Luke are similar...basically. I felt then, and still do, these words are hopeful and comforting. Blessed are the meek, the hungry, those who weep. God will take care of them and us if we put our trust in Him.
