Week 14 Devo – TUESDAY


Family crests (also known as coats of arms) date back to the Middle Ages in Europe and were placed on the shields and armor of knights as a way to distinguish one family from another. These designs often communicated the family’s values such as strength or wisdom. In light of our conversation about the spirit of adoption this week, what do you think it would feel like to be the only knight with a blank shield … and no family cheering you on?

Sin will always lead to isolation and loneliness, but God is the Father to the fatherless. The idea of abandonment is something that the Lord does not have for His children. The spirit of adoption gives us a new family crest, new colors to bear, and new values to show the world, regardless of performance.

What should Christians be known for in the area of children without families?
