Devotions for this week:
For everything there is season July 25-26, 2015
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven. Ecclesiastes 3:1
For every human experience, there is a time and a place for the experience to occur. Even though we would prefer to live only in the happy moments, all of the moments of our lives are a precious gift to be experienced fully.
Read the following daily readings to deepen your understanding of Sunday’s text. After the reading, ask the follow-up questions.
Sunday, Ecclesiastes 1:1-11; 3:1-17, For Everything There Is a Season
Monday, Ecclesiastes 3:9-15, The God-Given Task
Tuesday, Ecclesiastes 4:9-16, The Value of a Friend
Wednesday, Ecclesiastes 5:1-20, Reverence, Humility, and Contentment
Thursday, Ecclesiastes 6:1-12, The Frustration of Desires
Friday, Ecclesiastes 9:1-12, Take Life as It Comes

- How is wisdom compared to other values in these readings?
- What was a high point of your day? What was a low point?
- What do you think of the writer’s words that there are times for both the positive things in life and the negative? How can we honor all the times of our lives?
- What is the most difficult thing you have had to face? Where was/is God in your struggle?
Choose a story from the news that touches your heart. Discuss your concerns with your household or with a friend. Pray daily for all the people involved in the story, whether they are victims, witnesses, or perpetrators.
Close your devotion with a blessing.
May God bless every season of your life. Amen.
