11.12.14 devotions

Wednesday, November 12

Proverbs 19 Those who keep the commandment will live; those who are heedless of their ways will die. Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord,
and will be repaid in full.

 

Reflection:

The writer of Proverbs gives succinct insight into the life of faith. Acts of service do not emerge out of a vacuum. They materialize from a deeper well that Proverbs defines as “the commandments.” When we are faithful to the commands of God, we find life and…like water flows from a spring…so, too, do acts of goodness flow from our lives.

 

Questions for reflection:

What is one experience you have had in worship that has led to your feeling a greater connection with people around you? How might your involvement in worship further connections between people and people…and between people and God?
