Narrative Lectionary Key Verse for Today
NL Daily Devotion for Tuesday, July 9, 2019
by Daniel D. Maurer, Clergy Stuff
If you’ve never experienced riding a horse, I encourage you to try it sometime. Although it can be a daunting experience—after all, you’re on top of a vehicle with its own brain—it can also show you that there is a reason why human beings were created to live within community.
To safely ride a horse, a rider needs to be sensitive to the horse’s emotions and state of mind. Unlike a horse, as human beings, we can also rationalize and think beyond simply getting from point A to point B.
For us to successfully navigate through life, we need God and we need others. The good news comes when we realize that we are not alone.
Thank you, God, that you have given me faculties to think beyond what my instinctual needs are and seek only you. Amen.
