Psalm 71:1-6, Always Children

Key Verse

For you, O Lord, are my hope, my trust, O Lord, from my youth. Upon you I have leaned from my birth; it was you who took me from my mother’s womb. My praise is continually of you.
— Psalm 71: 5-6

RCL Daily Devotion for Friday, August 23, 2019

RCL Daily Devotions written by R. Fergus Moir from RCL Worship Resources (see more).

I grew up in a small church. Those people were my extended family, and that place was a second home. My childhood faith was steeped in the love of that wonderful community, and as a result, I have leaned upon God from my youth, as my hope and my trust.

Having a strong church upbringing was no guarantee that I would hold onto that childhood faith—like so many, I wandered. I wondered. I couldn’t make sense of God in light of the world. Yet underneath it all, there was a yearning. I knew that the church—the body of Christ—was my home.

In Christ, we are all children. It doesn’t matter when we come to faith—we can begin as children all over again, and we may hope and trust in God for all of our lives.

When did I first experience the love of God in community?
