Day 22 Devotional & Discussion – March 14, 2015

Deuteronomy 26:1-11

At the celebration of First Fruits, the people are to bring a basket filled with the abundance of their new home. Part of the ritual is remembering the story of their slavery in Egypt, God’s acts of liberation and the provision of abundance in the land of promise.   This is the story of a victory in the struggle for worker justice. What other stories of victory in the struggle for worker justice have you heard in your lifetime? What struggles for justice are still being fought? How does the story the Hebrews told at First Fruits encourage you in the midst of today’s battle for worker justice?

There is no devotional for Sunday, March 15. However, you’re welcome to read Psalm 136—a song that tells the story of God’s faithful love expressed through creation and liberation—as an act of worship.
