Devotions for Lent

Today's devotion entry also found here.

“Who are you to pass judgment on servants of another? It is before their own lord that they stand or fall. And they will be upheld, for the Lord is able to make them stand. 5 Some judge one day to be better than another, while others judge all days to be alike. Let all be fully convinced in their own minds. 6 Those who observe the day, observe it in honor of the Lord. Also those who eat, eat in honor of the Lord, since they give thanks to God; while those who abstain, abstain in honor of the Lord and give thanks to God.”

Romans 14:4-6

One of the great truths of the world is its diversity. We cannot ignore the fact that we—whoever “we” are—are not the only people in the world or the only ones with the “right” ideas. To fully search for truth, we must acknowledge that others find it by different means and in different ways than we do. Paul writes to a diverse group of Christians who must deal with one another, and our world is even more diverse. People around the world seek truth in many ways. Spin this prayer wheel a few times—discover some of the prayers that perhaps shape your quest for truth and consider the ones that may shape someone else’s.
