Message from the Morning Devotions
For the month of December, we had Uncles Rob Alexander and Don Pryer do our morning devotions. We also had the high school boys, Sam Robinson, Isaac Leadbetter, Jacob Robinson, and Joel Drywood, each do a devotion.
Uncle Rob showed us the difference between a hard vessel and soft clay, which can become a hard vessel. He talked to us about how easy it was for the soft clay to change shape and compared it to the mind of a young child. Children are always willing to learn new things, unlike the minds of some older people who were compared to the hard vessel. The older a person becomes, the more likely they are to be stuck on their ways instead of changing what they may be doing wrong. Uncle Rob told us to make sure we don’t harden our hearts and minds and become the hard vessel, but instead let God mould our minds like someone can mould soft clay.
Uncle Don began by showing us a question that is recorded in 2 Peter 3 v 11 which says, “What manner of person ought ye to be?” In the account, this question was directed in order to have others think about how they are acting in their lives. He also brought us to Titus 2, which says that we should be sound in faith and doctrine (vs. 7) and sound in speech (v.8). It is important for us to always act in the proper manner before our Heavenly Father. Uncle Don also reminded us of our hope, which is the kingdom, and he expressed this by reading the first two lines of the fifth verse of Hymn 383 which reads, “Rejoicing in hope and the joy of salvation, Father, we thank Thee Thy kingdom draws near.”
