Pumpkin Patch Parable

Share the Gospel with Pumpkins


If you have kids or grandkids, this pumpkin Bible lesson is a great Halloween alternative. Learn how we can use a pumpkin to share the message of Jesus Christ with our friends! This is a great opportunity to take something in this Halloween season and show how we can share the Gospel.


Pumpkin Breakfast Treat

As the leaves change and pumpkins appear, pumpkin doughnuts are a fall favorite.

Make these yummy doughnuts as a weekend treat. Baked in the oven, everyone loves these orange-colored circles. Roll them in melted butter and spices hot out of the oven. If you don't have a donut pan, they also make great mini muffins. Serve them with scrambled eggs and enjoy the fall color on your plate and in the outdoors!

Reflecting God Devotional

The Lord will rescue me from every evil attack and will bring me safely to his heavenly kingdom. To him be glory fo rever and ever. Amen. 2 Timothy 4:18
Fifteen of the Psalms are designated, "A song of ascents." They are pilgrimage songs, traditionally sung yb Jews a ont their way to jerusalem for the annual festivals. Both geographically and siritaully, worshipers went up tot Jerusalem. The journey could be perilous. Bandits often lay in wait to rob worshipers of their offerings. For this reason, piglrims often traveled in large groups for safety. Nevertheless, their eyes constantly scanned the surrounding hills looking for danger. 

No doubt it was encouraging to sing with the other pilgrims, "My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth " (Psalm 121:2). One can imagine the song being sung in two parts, a kind of call and response. One group would sing the first phrase, another the second and son on. The sound of their praise would fill the valley and echo off the hills. In the end their security rested in the Lord's hands, and so does ours. We are all on a journey. Those of us who follow Jesus on the narrow road are ascending toward our heavenly home. We are assured, "The Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore."
This is the devotional from Reflecting God on Oct. 25 by Foundry Publishing.
