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 I read the text for today, I had to reread them several times before I got more of an understanding of what they were about. I still don’t totally have a grasp on them, but what I do have I really like. I like how wisdom is female, and that wisdom is for all. It is interesting to me that wisdom was created. I never really thought about that before. I like how wisdom was created by God in the beginning and that wisdom is in everything. I also really liked how God delights in wisdom. May we be wise in our actions and words so that God can delight in us.
