Advent Devotion - Monday, December 16

Reflection and Prayer by Ashley Weibel (11th grade)

Psalm 40:1-10

1. What is more important to God that our sacrifices and offerings?

2. What can we expect from God?

Reflection: Much more important to God than our sacrifices and offerings are our love and faith. They show our true intentions and beliefs, instead of simply wealth or status. We can expect his continued love for us, his desire for us to know him, and his everlasting grace. God is truly good.

Prayer: I pray that I may be constantly reminded of the Lord’s great love and compassion and that I am never alone. 

The 2013 Advent Devotions were written by Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) youth and their leaders at the 2013 Youth Triennium. Each day provides a lectionary-based Scripture passage, questions for reflection, and the students' responses.
