Today’s Reading: Isaiah 11:1-2, 10

Out of the stump of David’s family will grow a shoot –
Yes, a new Branch bearing fruit from the old root.
And the Spirit of the Lord will rest on him –
the Spirit of wisdom and understanding
the Spirit of counsel and might,
the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord….
In that day the heir to David’s throne
Will be a banner of salvation to all the world.
The nations will rally to him,
And the land where he lives will be a glorious place.

Thoughts to discuss

  • How do you think God wants us to treat the less popular or less loved kid?
  • Who in your life needs to know that God loves them?
  • When have you found hope in a really hard situation?
As you hang today’s ornament on your Jesse Tree, say a prayer for those who are less valued in our world.
