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 closing presented.
Reading: Psalm 103
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?)
God is exalted above the heavens and God's glory is on the earth. God shows compassion for those that fear God and knows how we are made. We have eternal life through our belief in Jesus Christ, the son.
As for those who do not believe, their days are like grass. They wither away and will be no more. God's kingdom, however, is forever. We will live on.
David wrote many songs praising God. You may not be a song writer, but you can praise our Lord in your own way each day. And we should, for we have been truly blessed. --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
