Re: Verse reading–Exodus 1:8-22, 2:1-10 (day five)

Today marks the beginning of Freedom Weekend.  Over a hundred teens from across the city will gather in homes for a weekend designed to gather them around God’s Word in study and community.

The theme/emphasis is “Pause”.  Research shows that with the flood of information, images, and messages that daily cross their eyes, ears, and minds, this younger generation has a tougher time focusing and attaining significant depth in their thinking and processing.  They are masters at multi-tasking.

The scripture prescribes a different kind of attention needed for spiritual thinking and growth.  “Be still, and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10

Will you Pray for these teenagers this weekend?  Will you ask the Holy Spirit to give them a hunger to know God and to carve out moments where they set aside activity and distraction to learn and listen to the Holy Spirit through the Scriptures?

If it’s true for teens, it’s true for adults.  Will YOU Pause each day to listen, to learn, to know God ?

  1. I am grateful for you Scott, and for God’s anointing on your ministry. Although it did not work out for me to be involved physically this weekend, know that I will be lifting up you and all involved in this most important weekend. Asking that the Holy Spirit will convict the hearts of our youth and adults alike to choose the good portion, that will not be taken away from them.
