Morning Prayer Guide - Thursday

Read: Acts 17:10-15 and Psalm 85:8-13

St. Paul, St. Silas, and St. Timothy had worked in Thessaloniki, preaching to the Jews about Jesus. They became so angry and worked up that Paul, Silas, and Timothy had to leave town in the middle of the night. They moved on to Berea, and there found people who were a lot calmer and more reasonable. But eventually word got to the Thessalonians that they were there in Berea, so a bunch of them came over to stir up trouble. They weren’t satisfied to cause trouble in their own town, but had to travel a distance to start some more.

Take a few moments to consider this. Are you a troublemaker? Do you kick up a fuss whenever anything is said that you don’t like or that convicts you? Do you keep the fuss going even after it should be over? Ask God to show you. Ask him to forgive you where you’ve caused a ruckus. Write your own prayer.
