Prayer: So many choices, Lord. Help us to choose wisely as you would have us do. Amen
Reading: Luke 4: 1-13 (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?
So many choices, so many decisions. Should I eat the candy bar or the apple? Should I attend Sunday worship or join the guys for a round of golf? Should we disagree and shout in conflict or listen and attempt calm conversation?
We are often confronted with challenges that have the devil lurking in the background. We need to remind ourselves: What does God want us to do?
