Daily Devotion from the Church Health Center – 2 Kings 2:1-2

Monday, June 24, 2013 – Proper 8/Ordinary 13, Year C

We are approaching the sixth Sunday after Pentecost. The lectionary selections bring us sweet chariots swinging low, parting rivers and fruits of the Spirit. They include 2 Kings 2:1-2, 6-14; Psalm 77:1-2, 11-20; Galatians 5:1, 13-25 and Luke 9:51-62. Alternate selections include 1 Kings 19:15-16, 19-21 and Psalm 16.

2 Kings 2:1-2Now when the LORD was about to take Elijah up to heaven by a whirlwind, Elijah and Elisha were on their way from Gilgal. Elijah said to Elisha, “Stay here; for the LORD has sent me as far as Bethel.” But Elisha said, “As the LORD lives, and as you yourself live, I will not leave you.” So they went down to Bethel.

A few verses after these, Elisha is given another chance to stop travelling with Elijah, but he chooses to continue on the journey. Elisha’s faithfulness to God and Elijah runs deep. Consider today someone on whom you can depend to always be there for you, and give thanks to God for that person.

Prayer: Almighty God, thank you for bringing loving, dependable, trustworthy people into our lives. Amen.
