Reading: Psalm 40: 10-17 (Click to read text)
"I do not hide your righteousness in my heart; I speak of your faithfulness and salvation. I do not conceal your love and your truth from the great assembly." --Psalm 40: 10
"I am going to camp today!" That is what the sticker says along with the Camp Mount Luther name and logo. It is sent with your camp registration confirmation along with a packing list and other helpful information. The sticker is to be worn the day you leave for camp so all you see may know. Camp usually starts on a Sunday so folks at church will see the sticker, wish you good times and keep you in prayer. Maybe your neighbor will watch the minivan being loaded with suitcase and sleeping bag, come over to say farewell and see the sticker. Perhaps the cashier will notice the sticker as she is ringing out your last minute purchase of bug spray and sunscreen and ask about it. Tell the great assembly, "I am going to camp today!" - a place to learn about God's love and truth!
We don't always wear a sticker to tell people where we are going and what it is all about. Still, the Psalmist encourages us not to hide God's righteousness in our hearts. We are to speak of God's faithfulness and salvation. Think about how you can do that everyday and everywhere. --Ruth Gates, frequent Camp Mount Luther Family Camper
