Prayer: I praise you, O Lord. Your steadfast love endures forever!
Reading: Psalm 118:1-2, 14-24 (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?
The first two verses are enough for today.
O give thanks to the Lord, for he i s good; his steadfast love endures forever! Let Israel say,“His steadfast love endures forever.”
We could, as the psalmist does later in the poem, fill in how we experience God’s goodness and love. How do I love thee, let me count the ways. Wait, let’s do it this way today. How does God love me, let me count the ways.
Go ahead and count………………………………………….. And then just stop and sing:
O give thanks to the Lord, for he i s good;his steadfast love endures forever!
