For today's devotional, again we will use the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America's Book of Faith questions, which will also be a big part of Camp Mount Luther's GROW Time with campers this summer. First, read the passage and then discuss the four questions below. Conclude by reading the reflection and ponder the quote presented.
Reading: Psalm 139: 1-18
QUESTION 1: What scares, confuses, or challenges me in this text? (or for younger kids, which part of the story doesn’t make sense to me?)
QUESTION 2: What delights me in this text? (or for younger kids, what is my favorite part of the story?)
QUESTION 3: What stories or memories does this text stir in me? (or for younger kids, what does this story remind me of?)
QUESTION 4: What is God up to in this text? (or for younger kids, what is God or Jesus doing in this story?)
As we are on our Crosswalk with God, isn't it good to know that we have a friend with us that knows all about us. In scripture we are told that God knows everything about us, even the number of hairs on our head. There are no secrets that we can hold from God. God is all knowing.
There are probably things in your life that you have done that you wish were a secret to God. But isn't it wonderful to know that our Lord loves us even when we have done something that is wrong. God still embraces us and accepts us. We are God’s forever and ever. Why don't you take time out today to thank God for loving you that much! --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
Pray for something that is bothering you, knowing that God already knows your problem and is there to help you.
