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?
The steadfast love of God is an amazing, awesome gift. There are many times in my life when I am not that lovable, but God loves me anyway. For that I am extremely thankful. Human nature is a sinful one, but God forgives us. Jesus died on the cross for us and for our salvation. That is another thing to be thankful for. The Psalmist offers God his praise for God’s faithfulness, and rightly so. In reading all of Psalm 89 you get even more of the picture. Hopefully at this time you can offer some praise and thanksgiving for all God has given you – especially for God’s steadfast love that is everlasting and the forgiveness of us all.
