Be rooted and built up in [Christ Jesus], be 
established in faith, and overflow with 
thanksgiving just as you were taught. - Colossians 2:7 (CEB)

My twin eight-year-old daughters take swim lessons at the YMCA. The pool is long, and the lanes are separated by ropes and buoys. The youngest children in the class look like they are swatting flies when they swim. They zigzag into the lane ropes, then have to stop and untangle...

Today's Prayer
Dear God, teach us faith that is strong and straight. Thank you for other Christians who mentor and guide us. Amen.

Decades of Faithfulness

Pastor Harold Stinson was given The Upper Room as a child by his mother. He is now 71 years old and still reads the devotional guide every day but now in large print. He also hosts a daily prayer call and uses the scripture from the meditation as the basis for that call. 

Share the gift of faith by giving to the youth and young adult ministries of The Upper Room.
