Adam’s Devotional – June 28-July 4, 2018

From Adam…

When’s the last time you robbed, cheated, or stole form someone?  Number 8 of 10 is thou shall not steal. This is pretty straight forward. Don’t take what does not belong to you. Don’t shoplift. Don’t cheat to get ahead. But have you ever stolen someone’s answers to a test?  What about presenting someone else’s homework as your own?  What about stealing from each other figuratively?  God has given to us our identity as beloved children of God. How do we try to steal our identity? — taking it instead of receiving it.  How do we take it from others?   – -stealing their stories and gossiping about them as if they were our stories to tell.  The good news of the Gospel is that we can never steal from God because God has already given us everything.  What would it look like if we stole less and received more? God’s up to something.  Be a part of it.
