Jesus said to his parents, “[Know] ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?" - Luke 2:49 (KJV)
While reading about the prophet Anna in Luke’s Gospel, I felt guilty. A widow, Anna “did not depart from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day.” I’m also a widow but have never spent a whole day praying, let alone fasting. Was I failing God?...
How am I going about the Father’s business today?

The Upper Room lifts the spirits of residents I serve as a correctional chaplain. Christians and non-Christians read the devotions, reminding them of an alternative path to a loving God that will walk alongside them through the good and ugly of life.”
The Upper Room Chaplains’ Ministry provides military, VA hospital, and prison chaplains copies of the daily devotional for their ministry. Give today to support the Chaplains’ Ministry.
