Shalom

Isaiah 26:3

You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.

  • Read Hebrews chapter 11

The Hebrew word for peace is shalom. Shalom means happy, complete, and soundness. Our text promises us that if our mind is stayed upon the Lord, he will keep us in perfect shalom.

(questions for the kids)

  1. What do you think it means to have our mind stayed on God?
  2. Do you think this state of being is normative for you?
  3. Would you like it to be?
