Lenten Devotion : Tuesday March 7, 2017

The Sixth Commandment.

You shall not commit adultery.

What does this mean?--Answer.

We should fear and love God that we may lead a chaste and decent life in words and deeds, and each love and honor his spouse.

 

Like many of Luther’s explanations, this one demands not just refraining from something but also positive action. Our Lenten discipline isn’t just about denying but also about giving. Time spent together might be the best way that each of us can love and honor our families.

 

Prayer: God of all families, make love flourish in our families and in our communities, that couples would support and care for each other, and that the love of families would be a sign of your own love for our world. Amen.


Greetings and peace be with you,

Throughout Lent, the Lutheran Camping Corporation will be sending out daily devotions for your use. We invite you to read and reflect upon these devotions as part of your Lenten discipline.

This devotion, written by Pastor Clifton Eshbach, includes one of the texts from the daily lectionary in Evangelical Lutheran Worship, as well as some prayers and hymns from ELW that may be used in your Lenten discipline of study and reflection.
