Proverbs 29:18

Our devotions this Easter season come from members of Faith Lutheran Church. Today’s writer is George Amundson.

“Where there is no prophecy, the people cast off restraint, but happy are those who keep the law.” Proverbs 29:18

What if we had no preaching, or teaching, no Learning Groups, or no Faith Lutheran Church?

How could we work on our relationships with God and our neighbors?  We are told that good relationships don’t just happen. They need to be worked on. What is one of the first things Jesus did when he started his ministry: he gathered a few of his friends together. Pastor Nelson has been telling us for years that Christianity is “team sport.” The Learning Groups offered at Faith Lutheran would be a good starting point for us.

Learning Groups – 9:45 AM on Sunday Mornings

Basic Christianity – Led by Pastor Tan

Blessed Community – Led by Dave Gohlke and Mary Browne

Circle of friends – Led by Sara Karow

Parenting Beyond Your Capacity – Led by Betty Becker and Staci DeKunder

The Good News Class – Led by Cliff Condit

The Word and the World – Led by Pastor Nelson

Women of Faith – Led by Kate Faulkner

Young Families – Led by Eric and Courtney Lerch

Just a quick check of the Ten Commandments shows us God’s emphasis on our relationship with our neighbors. The first three are concerned with our relationship with God and seven, count them, seven have to do with our relationships with our neighbors.

Let us pray: Dear Lord, you have shown us that relationships are important. We know that anything of any worth is not easy to obtain, so, please give us the willingness to work on them. Amen.
