August 7, Saturday Devotion

August 7, Saturday DevotionJoel 1:13-2013 Dress yourselves in burlap and weep, you priests! Wail, you who serve before the altar! Come, spend the night in burlap, you ministers of my God. For there is no grain or wine to offer at the Temple of your God. 14 Announce a time of fasting; call the people together for a solemn meeting. Bring the leaders and all the people of the land into the Temple of the Lord your God, and cry out to him there. 15 The day of the Lord is near, the day when destruction comes from the Almighty. How terrible that day will be! 
Quick Notes/Questions
Sometimes people think that being a minister or pastor exempts them from the times of depression and famine.  This passage clearly shows that to be untrue.  When the community is afflicted, all of the community is afflicted together.
Quick Prayer
Lord Jesus Christ, may I join in with the sufferings with others that your name might be praised.  Amen.
