To celebrate Lutheran Schools Week (LSW), we collected devotions written by elementary school children. In this blog, 12 students from St. Michael Lutheran School in Portage interpreted the 2021 theme verse, Matthew 20:28.
“The Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many” (Matthew 20:28).
