Message from the Morning Devotions
By Madeline Robinson
This year in devotions we are learning about different themes in Proverbs. We are taking the lessons that we learn from Proverbs and seeing how we can apply them to our lives. We have had many wonderful devotions from different uncles in the ecclesia. In Proverbs 6 we talked about how we should consider the ant who continually works so that she will have food for the winter. Just like the ant we need to be busy in the ecclesia, so that we will be ready for our Lord’s return. We also learned about how we need to stay on the straight and narrow path and not be distracted by the cares of this life. We can make sure that we stay on the straight and narrow path by attending ecclesial functions, reading God’s word, and praying to God for instruction and guidance.
