As camp came to a close, I realized I had come out of the summer with more than a modest check, instead, I had left with a new appreciation and passion for the Lord's work. A passage that the Lord had really placed on my heart was 1 Thessalonians 5:12-18

12Now we ask you, brothers, to respect those who work hard among you, who are over you in the Lord and who admonish you. 13Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work. Live in peace with each other. 14And we urge you, brothers, warn those who are idle, encourage the timid, help the weak, be patient with everyone. 15Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always try to be kind to each other and to everyone else. 16Be joyful always; 17pray continually; 18give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.

The Lord has taught me a lot about respecting those in authority as well as those who work with me. My prayer is that I would place this into practice at Moody. Summer has come to a end, my the lessons I have learned are coming with me.
