Occasionally, we will reprint prior devotions that now reflect on the coming lectionary texts. This is a reprint from a devotion originally published on September 26, 2013.
1. What do you do when you are worried about something?
2. How do you find comfort and peace in God?
Reading: Philipians 4: 1-9 (Click to read text)
This verse tells us that we should not worry about anything. Instead of worrying, we should let our requests be known to God in prayer. By praying about things that worry us, we can find peace in God. That peace will guard our hearts and our minds. When we worry, if we turn our thoughts to Jesus Christ, we will feel peace.
The next time you are in a worrisome situation, pray about it and turn your thoughts toward God. There, you will find peace. --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
Closing: Discuss with others or meditate on this quote by Lao-tzu, "To see things in the seed, that is genius."
