Occasionally, we will reprint prior devotions that now reflect on the coming lectionary texts. This is a reprint from a devotion originally published on April 24, 2014.
Prayer: You show me the path of life. In your presence there is fullness of joy; in your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
Reading: Psalm 16 (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?
Reflection: Today for our devotional, I'd like you think about your response to this question: "We've seen the resurrection of our Lord, so how will we respond?" Then, spend some time in quiet prayer with God. To do that, I'd like you to slowly and deliberately recite the last verse of today's Psalm (it’s the prayer above) and meditate on how it might guide your life. When you are finished, pray to God for guidance as you determine your response to what God has done for you in the resurrection. --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
