S.T.I.R. day fourteen: The Option of Options

All Summer long our youth ministry, Switch, is going "GOSPELICIOUS". We reading through all the gospels in 90 days and each day we S.T.I.R. it up based on the one verse that really hit us hard that day. 2 Peter 3:1-2 says "Beloved, I now write to both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder), that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior..." so that's where we got the STIR idea from - that reading Scripture should "stir" us up. Enjoy!

S.cripture: Matthew 14:23 "Afterward he went up into the hills to pray

T.eaching: Jesus chose prayer over other options

I.mpact: I rarely choose prayer over other options. If there are other options, I usually choose them rather than prayer.

R.esponse: Jesus, I want to be like You - I want to know a deep relationship with You, but I find myself doing anything but prayer. Help me Holy Spirit - to choose the things that really matter. I love You. Love Brian
