This week, we’ll engage in something I’m calling a reverse devotional. Sort of like a reverse phone book, only more spiritual. 🙂
I’ve got a devotional book I frequently use, and today it listed two passages under the heading of “Doubt.” Here’s what we’ll do. I’ll give you the two passages, and you provide the devotional thought(s) to go with them:
2 Kings 6:15-16 “15 When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. “Oh, my lord, what shall we do?” the servant asked.
16 “Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”
Matthew 28:16-17 “16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted.”
You may want to look at the context surrounding these two passages. I noticed that in each instance, an established leader was dialoguing with an emerging leader(s). I think that is a significant detail.
What thoughts come to your mind as you read these?
What would you say if you were mentoring an up and coming leader with these passages?
I look forward to our interaction.
