An Advent Devotional from the Church Health Center – Isaiah 2:4a

Tuesday, December 3, 2013

Isaiah 2:4aHe shall judge between the nations, and shall arbitrate for many peoples; they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks…

Isaiah shares a radical vision of God’s peace. In this passage, tools of war are turned into farm implements and tools of destruction are turned into tools of creation…tools used to create food, sustenance. Advent is a time to dream big dreams and to envision that time when God’s peaceful kingdom is a reality.

Prayer: Creator, Sustainer God, give us this day our daily bread. Open our eyes to the hunger in our neighbor’s eyes, and give us the strength and wisdom to help. Amen.
