Isaiah 65:21-22They shall build houses and inhabit them; they shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit. They shall not build and another inhabit; they shall not plant and another eat; for like the days of a tree shall the days of my people be, and my chosen shall long enjoy the work of their hands.

When a tree loses a branch, the tree slowly extends itself over the resulting wound, sometimes leaving a knot or a scar. Other times, the tree sends off shoots of new life around the broken place, sometimes creating several new branches. Either way, the tree is forever changed.

Prayer: Healer God, help us remain in communion with you through life’s trials so that we can continue to grow despite the injuries incurred. Amen.

2 Thessalonians 3:7-8For you yourselves knowhow you ought to imitate us; we were not idle when we were with you, and we did not eat anyone’s bread without paying for it; but with toil and labor we worked night and day, so that we might not burden any of you.

In Paul’s letters to Timothy, he speaks of the importance of being a good example to those he is leading in the faith. Now in this letter from Paul and Timothy, they are asking the Thessalonians to be good examples to one another.

Prayer: Gracious God, help us lead lives worthy of imitation by others around us. Amen.
