Philip asked the Ethiopian eunuch, “Do you understand what you are reading?” - Acts 8:30 (NIV)
In 1965, I was in a special reading class to develop my comprehension skills. When I walked into the class on the first day, my immediate thought was, I'm stupid, because I would be sitting at a table with other people my peers had called “stupid.”
Acts 8:30-31 reminds me...
Wisdom is a fountain oflife to one who has it(Prov. 16:22, nrsv).

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.
