- When have you felt like a winner?
- When have you felt chosen?
- When do you feel loved?
Reading: Colossians 3: 12-17
We have a saying at camp, "Everyone's a Winner at Camp Mount Luther." When we play games, we like to end them in a tie to show that there are no losers. We try to make the outcomes of games and activities very positive.
In God's eyes, everyone is a winner, too. God's chosen children are all winners to God. But as God's children, we should act certain ways. In Colossians, there is a "code of conduct" for all of God's children, telling us how we should live our lives. They are important words that we should heed.
As it says in this scripture passage, loving each other is important. Love binds us together in perfect harmony. If we love one another and treat our fellow human beings as winners, the world will be a better place to live. --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
Closing: Reread the scripture passage for today and write down a few reminders from that "code of conduct" as to how you should act as a child of God. You may wish to put your reminders on Post-It-Notes and place them in areas you'll see often.
