Good morning from Shakamak – Tuesdays Flagpole devotion

Compadre, Jesse Martin, led the campers in this mornings flagpole devotion and pledge of allegiance.  Jesse asked Compadre, Vincent Landfair, to read 2 Corinthians 12:8-10.  Today’s theme is “Stronger than Hulk.”  Verse 10 actually says, “When I am weak, then I am strong.”   Think about Paul, when we first read about him, he was persecuting Christians….actually taking people from their homes for their beliefs…..but God turned him around. 

In 1 Corinthians 1:25, it tells us that whenever we make mistakes, whenever we are weak, whenever we sin, God is strong enough to cleanse us.

We have a family right here to help us when we are weak…..standing right beside you. 

In Acts 27:23-24, we read about Paul’s weakness and in that weakness, God’s strength shines thru.  God saved Paul and his entire crew that day.  

Today, look around for people that are struggling or weak.  Help them.  Care for them.  Encourage them.
