The Third Week of Lent – Saturday

March 21, 2020

by Jill Duffield, Presbyterian Outlook editor


Consolation is not a word we use much anymore, short of describing a secondtier
prize. In this verse we are told that God consoles us, enabling us to console others. Think about who and what brings you comfort. How does your faith bring consolation? How can you console someone today?

God, when we are afflicted, disappointed and reeling from loss, you console, comfort
and care for us. That consolation comes in the form of people, prayer and moments of the peace that passes understanding. May the relief of your grace prompt us to extend that grace to others who right now need to know you care. Amen.
